Big Publishers: Can the Spanish Armada transform into the British Fleet?
Can big publishers change enough to address how today’s students learn, educator’s teach, and shifting business models associated with both? In the US textbook market we have three very large players. Big publishers have process, coordination, and business accountability issues which are far less of a hindrance to smaller organizations. The result is that larger organizations can’t change quickly. While all publishers are concerned with make quarterly numbers and hitting academic deadlines a large corporate infrastructure while necessary for a large organization limits the ability of that organization to adapt to market demands.
How does the move from print to digital look different for large publishers versus smaller organizations? Schools continue to adopt instructional resources and either ask that the electronic version be included with the print, ask for a class set of print and a digital version for students, or only want the digital version… sometimes only a few chapters! We will discuss how publishers, small and large, can make it through this morass and emerge successfully in a digital first world. We’ll touch on tools and technical standards that can ease this transition.
Take a seat at as guests take a bite out of questions like:
What role are big publishers playing in the future?
What opportunities does this leave for smaller organizations?
Is it sustainable to provide both print and digital assets?
Is it the job of the publisher to lead innovation or to reflect innovation and change?

The Prodigal Son: The Reverend Curtis Black hasn't spoken to his son, Matthew, in over a year-not since Matthew dropped out of Harvard to marry his girlfriend, Racquel, and be a full-time father to their infant son. Curtis knows that it was he and his wife, Charlotte, who drove Matthew away, but he prays that one day his son will forgive them and come home.
Then, there's Dillon Whitfield-Curtis's long-lost-son-who has settled in as a member of the Black family. Yet the transition has been anything but easy. Charlotte, convinced he's only after Curtis's money, wishes he would move back to where he came from. Dillon, however, has no intention of going anywhere. After a lifetime in the shadows, he's determined to take his rightful place as Curtis's first-born son and heir, and he'll do whatever it takes to win his father's affection-even if it means playing dirty...

Steve Martin attended Birmingham City University where he gained a degree in English. Since then,
he has worked mainly in education, including 15 years teaching English in prisons. He currently lives in Llandudno in North Wales with his wife and two sons. Steve has had six non-fiction children's books published with Buster Books, one of Britain’s leading publishers of children's books. He has also had a range of other work published, including abridged classics for children and his adult novel, Going Down, based on his experience of working in the prison system. Please visit the author’s website: http://www.steve-martin.co.uk/
Here is a brief synopsis of his current title:
Kevin Beeston is a 15-year-old on work assignment with his father's company. The company demolishes old buildings, replacing them with mass-produced buildings. In one of the buildings Kevin
encounters a group of ghosts. He finds that these spirits are tied to the old buildings and once the building is destroyed, so are they. Kevin then begins a campaign to save the natural habitat of the ghosts.
The Poppleham Ghosts is more than a ghost story and is more concerned with the manner in which the modern world is increasingly sterile and mass-produced and leaves no place for the imagination
(symbolized by the ghosts).This is a book that will appeal to Young Adults making the transition from childhood to adulthood and battling with the pressures and realities of today’s world.
A strange sense of wonder washes over me as the words 'anniversary' leap on the screen of this computer. It's eleven letters but put them all together and a thousand images, sounds, words, books, and people explode inside my mind.
A year of discovery. A year of growth. A year of learning. A year of hope. A year of dreams fulfilled. A year completely sustained by the grace of God.
Join me for this very special episode of the Write Stuff as we celebrate the first anniversary by taking your calls, recaping things we've learned, and saying hi to some old friends.

nterview Jim Musgrave
Topics of conversation:
Why enhanced eBooks will be the future paradigm of digital reading.
Why I made Steam City Pirates into an enhanced eBook.
I am hosting a new BlogTalk radio show about Steampunk. It’s called “Letting Off Steam with Jim Musgrave, Godfather of Steampunk.” It’s under the umbrella of Pam Stack’s “Authors on the Air” series of popular shows.
Why do male readers, for the most part, get bored easily with novels that have no constant action?
What’s the main advantage Indie authors can have over mainstream “Big Five Publishers” authors?
Clay Thomas Williams started writing at an early age. It was a form of expression for her. She started with poetry, and then joined a songwriting team, and became a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and the writer’s café.org. It was a natural progression to pen a novel. Clay Thomas Williams has been a fan of the literary arts for quite some time. After continued prodding from her Publisher, Upnext Media Group, And Then There Were None became a reality.
As Clay explores her imagination, her goal is to entertain the world one book at a time!
Additionally, Clay Thomas Williams is a freelancer, writer and copy editor for an exciting nationwide informative motorcycle magazine; IRIDE magazine based out of North Carolina.
Clay Thomas Williams lives by the philosophy that every bit of fiction has a hint of the truth, and life experiences good or bad, create and shape the beautiful, brilliant black woman she is. She resides in North Carolina with her family and has hopes that one of novels blesses the big screen.
This is the week of the show that we talk about people sharing their message through publishing. We talk to authors, publishers, speakers…people with a message to share. Betty shares insights in her new book with us today.
