The real reality of ebooks and their impact

In continuing the talk about the state of the publishing world from yesterday’s blog post, I’d like to ask this question to my fellow writers: what does separate reality from fiction these days? For writers, the fiction about the future of books could, and does, fill page after page of magazines, blog posts, and twitter feeds. Well, maybe here’s something that can help us all out. And best, of all, it’s free.

Digital Book World is offering this free webinar on Sept 20 entitled, “Ebooks’ Real Impact on the Book Publishing Market: 2009 – 2011.” Here’s the skinny on it from the DBW website:

In this free WEBcast, we’ll reveal the results, trends, and best practices of ebook publishers as uncovered over the past two years in a three survey series conducted by Aptara – the findings from the third, of which, were just released.  What works and what doesn’t?  From production techniques, preferred file formats and distribution channels, to enhanced ebooks and apps strategies, we’ll discuss how the findings correspond and differ across publishing market segments.  In addition to sharing insight collected from over 1,300 publishers, we’ll talk with digital experts from both sides of the Atlantic to understand how digital publishing is evolving in the United States and Europe.”

It certainly looks like there will be some important discussions going on. Hope y’all can make it!
