The smart book for a new market | The Bookseller | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how the audio download market was rising to the challenge of a flagging e-book market, with growth at sustainable pricing levels and investment in new original content. But could the enhanced e-book also be making a return to bolster publisher income and re-spark interest in what some are now describing as “complex” books?

Last week The Bookseller looked at the e-book market with first half figures from the major publishers, concluding that what was once booming is now maturing. Volume e-book figures, supplied by Penguin Random House, Hachette, HarperCollins, Pan Macmillan and Simon & Schuster, show a collective 5.3% rise in unit sales for the first six months of 2015.

ePUBSecrets | Indexes in ebooks

ePUBSecrets | Indexes in ebooks | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

An index is a beautiful thing. It adds value to the book. I would argue that indexes are not only still relevant, there are all kinds of ways they could take advantage of the digital milieu to improve the reader’s experience. At a minimum, index headings would be hyperlinked to the text. But why not use colors and typefaces to indicate relative importance or different categories of headings? And, since we’re dreaming, why not have collapsible headings that can be expanded with a touch? Why not enable some kind of user input, perhaps “searching” the index for certain types of headings (all people, perhaps, or all companies in a business-related book)?

Scott Waxman: Living happily, if not entirely digitally, EverAfter | The Bookseller

Scott Waxman: Living happily, if not entirely digitally, EverAfter | The Bookseller | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

"I don't see the logic in going digital-only," says Diversion Books founder Scott Waxman. Even as the newly launched and determinedly digital Canelo Publishing announces its latest book — P.W. Singer and August Cole's Ghost Fleet — other parts of digital publishing seem to be running in the opposite direction. Less than a year after its launch as a romance-only e-bookstore app, Diversion's EverAfter is getting into print for self-published romance authors with distribution "to more than 200 retailers"; returnability and discounting for booksellers; and "a dedicated sales team." In an announcement online, the company mentions "new standards of high print quality at lower costs will now be attainable for self-published authors, including bulk discounts." EverAfter's print programme is opening with more than 100 titles from 12 authors including CD Reiss; Jen McLaughlin; and big-selling Marie Force. I've asked Waxman to fill us in on the move. "We want many different kinds of authors to be able to work with us," he says, "from traditionally published to self-published...in this new author-centric publishing world of ours." — Porter Anderson
