Examining New Business Models | CCC's Beyond the Book

Until very recently, the core business model of publishing was in a steady state. Indeed, it was so for a couple of hundred years – Publishers acquired copyrights, sometime risking cash to do so by paying in advance; they printed books; and they sold them. Yet in 2014, new models roll out regularly. Publishers in topical verticals are creating subscription offers, and others are even selling memberships. They’ve organized special live events, and they sell tickets to readers to meet their authors. Recorded at this month’s Digital Book World 2014 Conference, a panel of innovative publishers tells CCC’s Chris Kenneally how their new approaches move beyond simply selling books one at a time. The discussion features Lyron Bennett, Sourcebooks; Brandi Larsen, BookCountry; John Tayman, Byliner; and Karl Weber, LID Publishing.

Chloe Weil — Hipster

Chloe Weil is a hilarious person-who-makes-things. She has one cat. I built Twitter. For the past few months I’ve loosely talked about my intent to publish micro-content (a tweet) to my site and send a copy out to Twitter, as opposed to using Twitter directly. This publishing model goes by the acronym POSSE: Post to your Own Site and Syndicate Elsewhere. http://chloeweil.com/blog/hipster

#58: Richard Nash | Three Percent

We’re back! With our newest and semi-delayed installment of the Three Percent Podcast. This week is a two-parter. First, Chad and Tom run down the list of fiction and poetry finalists for the 2013 Best Translated Book Awards. Yes, it’s true that these were announced a couple weeks ago, but, as luck would have it, today (Friday, May 3) happens to be the big awards ceremony, which is taking place at the PEN World Voices Festival in NYC (come one, come all!). So, what better time than now to brush up on the potential winners? Then, the podcast’s main event: Chad and Tom are joined by the one-and-only Richard Nash to talk about Richard’s recent article in the Virginia Quarterly Review. The title and subtitle should give you a nice teaser to their discussion: “What Is the Business of Literature?: As technology disrupts the business model of traditional publishers, the industry must imagine new ways of capturing the value of a book.” And this week’s music is Echo Room from the new and self-titled album by Bored Nothing.

Tavi Gevinson: Tavi's World

Tavi Gevinson was 11 when she kicked off her writing career with a fashion blog called Style Rookie. She had smart, sharp observations on fashion and visual style and the usual girl things that an 11 year old is obsessed with and she had an audience. And it was big. They were pre-teens and teenagers who had someone from their cohort who spoke to them. Gevinson was soon reporting on Fashion Weeks in Paris, London and New York and quickly got up the noses of the fashion editors and style queens. Who was this upstart 11 year old? Your first response may be to immediately dislike someone this young... with talent; and you might immediately assume that she’s as obnoxious as some soapie star. You’d be wrong. Tavi is now 17. Though it’s 17 going on 48 or 50. She’s smart, witty, erudite, with a good line in self-deprecating patter. She was a keynote speaker at the Melbourne Writers Festival and she packed out the Athanaeum Theatre with young women wearing ‘Tavi headgear’ the bunches of roses that she used to wear when she was 11 or 12, and their mums and the odd dad. Here, she’s giving her ‘fangirl’ keynote speech. http://www.abc.net.au/tv/bigideas/stories/2013/09/09/3840224.htm

Seizure Sessions with Pat Grant

For this Seizure Session, we sat down with comic artist Pat Grant, to find out about how Blue was brought to life. Between the wine pouring. chip crunching and howling sirens, you can hear how he went from printing at the Broadway Kinkos to book distribution in three countries, his latest “art scam”, and why he made the entirety of Blue available online. He also tells us the greatest wedding story ever heard and who exactly validates his career. So put those headphones on folks, it’s a cracker.
