In an exciting and timely development at Digital Book World (DBW), the pre-eminent conference and expo on ebook publishing now running in New York, the self-publishing sector has been allocated its own day-long event, and ALLi's founder and director Orna Ross is a crucial part of it.
As Dan Holloway previewed in his news round-up here on Tuesday, today (Thursday 19th January) is the big day when indie authors will be under the spotlight at DBW. Led by The Hot Sheet's Porter Anderson and Jane Friedman, it's running under the exciting heading “First Conference for the New Professional Author”, and you can find the full programme here.
This is a terrific example of an important event in publishing opening up to indies.
For the benefit of all ALLi members who were not able to attend, Orna will be reporting back on the conference, the expo, and the latest hot news re digital pubishing here on our blog next week.
