Book Publishing

The world of publishing is changing as rapidly as the rest of the entertainment industry. Readers can now access the latest bestseller in print and on a range of devices in both written and audio formats. Technology offers authors and publishers a variety of new ways to engage with fans and market ancillary products via social media and other digital platforms, each of which carries its own risks and benefits.
