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?

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.

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?
