And so we come full-circle. It’s been a fantastic ride, and we’ve heard so many bright perspectives and ideas about many–though not all–the ins-and-outs of book business.
Now we’ve brought Adam Gidwitz, endlessly energetic author of A Tale Dark and Grimm, back to talk about just how much energy is required once publication transforms a writer into an author. The role of the author in publicity and promotion is a very hot topic right now in circles where topics related to publisher strategy can be thought of as “hot.” Digital communities demand certain things (and lots of ’em) from authors, and there are even folks who make a living training authors in the finer arts of digital PR.
Here’s to the future of books, and here’s to all of us who want to be there to make it happen. See you all after Thanksgiving!
