What's Happening with Ebooks
Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m.
Come at 6:30 to network. 

Our next meeting will be chock-full of information about ebooks.

First, ebook sales are down. We'll spend a little time asking why. Second, plagiarism and piracy are a concern, but how much of a concern and what can be done? Third, remember the first ebooks? They were, yes, ugly. The technology has changed, of course.

BookMobile's Amy Dvorak and Arna Wilkinson will give a glimse into the digital world of ebooks. What can you do yourself? When do you need to hire a professional? Do you understand a fixed layout versus a reflowable ebook? The all-important conversion from your print book: What can you do? And what can't you do yet? The pro's will answer your questions.

Bring whatever you need to capture the information: there will be a lot of it.  

Free and open to the public.

April 19 Meeting: PW's Claire Kirch

 

NOTE DATE CHANGE!

Claire has been senior correspondent for Publishers Weekly, covering the Midwest for several years. Her articles span a wide range of publishing topics as you can see at http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/article_authors/27.html.

Claire will talk about her experiences, the changes she’s seen in publishing, and the lessons authors and publishers have learned, which undoubtedly will include the timing of book reviews. Join us on Wednesday, April 19, a week later than our usual meeting night, at Midland Hills.

We'll also ask our attendees to talk about the mistakes they've made and what they wish they had known when they started in publishing so we can all learn from each other. This is the final meeting of the year since May is our Book Awards Gala (finalists will be announced in mid-April).
