BookMachine Weekly BookWrap: publishing stories from around the web

It’s been a happenin’ week to choose for this first BookWrap post: the trade is debating whether J.K Rowling’s New PotterMore Site Will change Digital Publishing. As a Self-Published Author Sells a Million E-Books on Amazon for the first time, authors are asking What Are The Publishers Doing for Us?

Yes, lots of questions, many of which were addressed at Tuesday’s Publishers Launch conference in London, where consensus was reached that the role of the book editor needs to change.

Still, as Kerouac Heads To the ipad and one publisher figures out  How To Run A News Site And Newspaper Using WordPress And Google Docs, dramatically cutting production costs, it’s good to see that publishing innovation abounds.

 

Got a story for next week’s BookWrap? Let us know.
