The June Issue of Book Business Magazine is live — in print, online and in digital edition.
Hello, Book Business readers,
The new edition of Book Business magazine should be on its way to you — and can also be accessed online, in a full-featured digital edition or via your iPad through our app— was a lot of fun for us to put together. We've got an interview with Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook. We talk to Matt about the publicity process for his debut novel that was adapted into the Academy Award-winning film. We've also got a piece from one of our personal heroes, the great Bill Kasdorf, that demystifies the EPUB 3 ebook file format and helps ensure you're putting it to its best use.
And there's more:
- Publishing Business Group Editorial Director Lynn Rosen and Howard continue their series of startup profiles, Future Think, featuring companies such as BookBub, Atavist, Ginkgo Tree and Publerati that are pushing the boundaries of publishing.
- Jennifer Worrick surveys the book ecosystem in Seattle.
- Digital Directions columnist Andrew Brenneman says education publishers must rethink the monolithic print textbook to thrive in the global digital age.
Plus, Rosen muses on the importance of reading local, and so much more.
