Rogue Digital Seminar Details

think fresh, think digital

We’ve got a time: 8:30 AM
On a date: July 16
And a Room: The Harding Room

While we have some great sponsors including: Books on Board, Red Sage Publishing, Samhain Publishing, Quartet Press, and Smart Bitches, this is a streamlined event and we would ask you to bring your own tea, coffee, hashbrowns or donuts. That’s right, it’s BYOTCH-D.

For the Rogue Digital Conference

Kassia Krozser of Booksquare.com and a frequent speaker on the publishing circuit and the head of a new romance epublisher, Quartet Press, will start us off by focusing on digital issues, particularly the contrasts between traditional print publishers and digital publishers. She will be highlighting the efficiencies of the latter, challenges (and strengths) for the former, and questions authors (and maybe readers) should be asking. Kassia will touch on timing of reversion of rights, territorial rights in the worldwide digital audience, chunked content, and the spectre of being paid on the net.

I will discuss digital promotion and some self publishing numbers shared by authors as well as the results of the Smart Btiches eBook Reader Olympics.

Jane Litte from DearAuthor.com will share with you the five questions you need to ask your agent about the Google Book Settlement. She will discuss how evolving technology may affect the number of ereading devices in the future such as transreflective LCD screens, the popularity of netbooks, tablets, and dedicated readers and the rise of the smartphone.

Angela James of Samhain Publishing will present the digital publishing model and how it works along with the pros and cons of publishing with a digital publisher (aka why you may or may not want to go this route with your next book) with a straight look at the money.

Maya Banks and Lauren Dane, two epublished and print published authors, are ready to share the hard numbers about digital publishing and why they’ve both chosen to keep one foot in the digital publishing pond.

    I live within walking distance of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel where RWA 2009 is going to be and I would love to take advantage of it, if at all possible.

    I have heard there is a Booksigning Wednesday; do you have to buy there, or may you bring your own? (Because it’s a charitable contribution, I was wondering about the buying.)

    Are there any other events the members of the public can attend?

    Any chance of a SBTB meetup somewhere?

    Hi Spider,

    Since the booksigning IS a fundraiser for literacy, RWA requests that people not bring copies of books they already own, but instead purchase books there. I have no idea how strictly they enforce this, since this will be the first time I attend this event.

    Mass props to the rogue digital workshop presenters! Way to take the reigns and bring your vision to the conference! I’ll be there, questions at the ready~

    We are not signing at the Literacy signing, though I really wish we could have. We will be doing a Bootleg Bitches & Beer Booksigning during Happy Hour on Thursday-  stay tuned for details. All proceeds from our booksigning will benefit literacy.

    Heavens, I am having the worst trouble with comments!  Since it ate the last one…

    Please, sorry about the double posting!  I kept getting error messages and would wait a while and try reposting.

    Thank you for the information!
