We just returned from attending the London Book Fair for the first time. Though a schedule of 36 meetings in 3 days seemed daunting when we landed in the gray rain at Heathrow a day prior to the Fair, 3 days later we were so energized by the excited anticipation we encountered from publishers that we felt ready for another round. We demoed our Slicebooks Publishing Services and Store platform for publishers of all shapes and sizes, from Big 5 media conglomerates to boutique academic presses, global scientific organizations to the creative folks at the Guinness Book of World Records. The Slicebooks mission to help publishers repurpose and remonetize content was well received indeed, and most can’t wait to get their hands on our new eBook Remix App.
And though there seemed barely time to share a warm pint and compare notes at the end of each day, compared to the marathon distances between exhibit halls at Frankfurt, the Earl’s Court center was quaint and easy to navigate in comparison.
But not much time to shake off the jet lag. Our next event will be the Book Expo America 2014 at NYC May 29-31, where we’ll be launching the Slicebooks Store and the eBook Remix App in public beta (fingers crossed).
