Book Expo America – NYC #BEA11
Book Expo America is taking place this week in New York City. THE book trade show, I look forward to BEA every year and seeing the trends, the celebrities, and all things book related. I wanted to supply our loyal followers with ‘the first buzz’ on the street from some trusted folks in the book business.
Publishers Weekly had this to say, which we anticipated, that all the buzz at BEA is about going digital and eBooks soaring as reported sales in many places is eroding.
The other interesting note is about Virtual Author Signings which Ingram hosted and is getting very good reviews. A sign of things to come for sure; authors, publishers and everyone involved in the industry must be more tech-savvy than ever.
That is why we have partnered with Vook over the last several months offering enhanced eBooks; what we believe will be the next wave of excitement.
