BookMachine Weekly BookWrap: publishing stories from around the web

As Adobe kills mobile Flash, giving Steve Jobs the last laugh, publishers are scrambling for an HTML based solution to complex layout titles.  Also in the digital business, it’s been yet another interesting week for Kobo: Publishing, Self-Publishing And Getting Bought.

Tim O’Reilly has some Thoughts on ebooks triggered by the appointment of Andrew Savikas as CEO of Safari Books Online, while Future Book has An examination of digital publishing roles. It’s always worth checking out an Exclusive interview with Smashwords founder Mark Coker, and apparently there’s an Interactive Digital Book Cover that Changes at Your Touch.

Elsewhere, you can find out All About Literary Agents and peruse some Great book jackets: Tips from 4 design pros, while learning How to make a book trailer for $50,000.

The book is great technology, but it’s not good for everything. Stanza is another great technology, and the good news is it gets one last iOS 5 update.

And finally, try getting on board with this crowd sourced audiobooks project, and watch out tonight for Five Short Lectures on Knowledge vs. Practice in Publishing Today.
