Embracing ebooks ... slowly?
Wednesday 5 February 2014
GUEST SPEAKER: Tonile Wortley, UQP editorial assistant responsible for ebook publishing
On her website, February's guest speaker, Tonile Wortley states that she is 'slowly embracing ebooks' but still prefers holding a physical book in her hands - no small thing for UQP's ebook boss to say!
From a business perspective, ebooks have revolutionised the publishing world, but have arrived with the premise that they should be made to look as close to print form as possible. Please come and listen as Tonile discusses ebooks and the challenges they represent for traditional publishing houses, authors and readers.
