Podcast episode: 50
Publishing, writing and reading in the digital era.
(Editor at The Bodley Head, a non-fiction imprint at The Random House Group)
Self-publishing, eBooks, Amazon, piracy - the threats to trade publishing are numerous but the opportunities are too. Publishers need to be creative and agile in order to adapt to the rapidly changing retail and consumer environments we currently face. Thinking about content creatively and taking risks on new formats and retail channels is vital. Kay will talk briefly about what Random House is doing in this area and will also touch on how other trade publishers are evolving from the traditional book publishing model into the multi-platform 'content' model.
