What Publishers, Book Manufacturers, and Authors Need to Know in 2018

It’s that time of year when publishers, book manufacturers, and authors are identifying the key trends that will influence their roles in the industry during the next 12 months. In 2018, the publishing industry will likely follow the broader patterns that have been seen throughout the past decade, including the rise of small publishers, digital platforms, and new formats. This webinar is designed to share industry leaders’ perspectives on how these trends will impact your business goals this year and in the years to come.

Key concepts we’ll explore include:

  • How will publishers deal with various trends of the past decade, including the rise of e-books, indie publishing, Amazon’s dominance over the industry?
  • What print technologies are in place to meet customer demands for shorter runs and ultra-fast turnarounds?
  • With hundreds of titles being driven by independent and self-publishers, what’s the best way for new authors to get discovered?

This webinar will also cover how publishers, authors, and book manufacturers can evaluate business models to drive readership and make content available where and when consumers want it.

Come to this session armed with your questions. You’ll be able to submit questions directly to our panelists for a live Q&A session during the hour.
