Traditional bookselling in a digital age

Traditional bookselling in a digital age | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
I often consider how fortunate I am to be working at the Press' Bookshop and showroom in the centre of Cambridge. The shop is located in one of the best retail spaces in Cambridge and boasts a stunning view across to the University Senate House and King's College Chapel. Not only that but we can claim to be continuing a noble tradition in being the latest in a long line of booksellers that have operated continuously from this site since around 1581, making it the oldest bookshop site in the country. Thus it is the ideal location from which to sell the publications of the oldest publisher. However that heritage can seem at risk in the face of new technologies and the dawning digital age.

Everything You Need to Know About Being a Hybrid Author - DBW | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
Digital publishing has drastically changed the landscape of the publishing industry, opening up new paths to success. Once upon a time, the only way for an author to get their books into the hands of readers was to land a deal with a publisher and allow them to distribute your title. This took a lot of time, and many authors were turned away time and time again.

Why Publishers Must Go Mobile

Why Publishers Must Go Mobile | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
The debate about the true size of the self-published market continues. Traditional publishers and advocates for independent works have each tried to position the market as more or less tilting their way. To date, we’ve not seen much of a discussion about why knowing the size of the book market matters.

Here’s one reason it matters: mobile content discovery and consumption.

The biography of a paperback – books podcast | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
This week the books podcast takes a physical turn, shifting away from the intangible business of writing to consider the hunks of wood we haul around for our reading pleasure. With sales of printed books on the rise, there’s little sign the reading experience will go entirely digital any time soon. So how does a novel make the jump from manuscript to bookshop, and what happens next?

The Big Titles U.S. Agencies Will be Selling at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair

The Big Titles U.S. Agencies Will be Selling at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
One of the hottest fiction titles at Baror is Cory Doctorow’s novel Walkaway (Tor, Apr. 2017), which the shingle bills as “an epic tale of revolution, love, post-scarcity, and the end of death.” The sci-fi thriller follows a man who lives through the breakdown of society as he knows it. Another fiction biggie for the agency is Omega Canyon by Dan Simmons (Little, Brown, Mar. 2017). This work of historical fiction follows two Viennese brothers who flee Europe on the eve of World War II—one, a physicist, goes to work on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos, while the other becomes a commando in England’s Special Operations Executive program. Newcomer Megan Bannen, a librarian by trade, retells an epic poem from ancient Persia in her debut, The Nameless Prince (HC/Balzer + Bray, fall 2018). Another debut, this one nonfiction, is Sarah Robb O’Hagan’s Extreme You: Step Up. Stand Out. Kick Ass. Repeat. (HarperBusiness, Apr. 2017). The former president of Gatorade and Equinox, O’Hagan is a fitness guru, and her book lays out an intense training program.
