Speak Your Mind at the Next Tools of Change (TOC) Conference
I just submitted a proposal for a session I'd like to give called "Looking Beyond the $9.99 Ebook." Here's the abstract:
The publishing industry is currently caught up in the $9.99 ebook model popularized by Amazon's Kindle. It's time to quit whining about "the cheapening of our IP" and start thinking about new models with added value and larger revenue opportunities.
There are a number of key points I want to make and I plan to add to that list in the coming months. This is an area I'm extremely passionate about (as you've no doubt seen in earlier Publishing 2020 posts!).
How about you? What are you passionate about? Why not write up a summary and submit it for TOC consideration?
We seem to agree on the points of eBooks currently being second class to print books. I wrote a couple of entries on our DashBook blog that say that everyone is rushing to repeat print books in e-format, without considering that eBooks could offer so much more.
