Episode 157 – Reflections on London Book Fair

London Book FairFresh [sic] from the London Book Fair 2019, where Practical Inspiration Publishing was an exhibitor, this week’s episode is a reflection on the big themes of the Fair, and the Quantum conference that preceded it (and of which I was a Chair). Listen up for the latest on:

the growth of non-fiction – why we’re all trying to make sense of a world gone mad

the audio explosion – how audio books, podcasts and voice-first discovery are shaping the new publishing landscape

independent publishers – why they’re increasingly shaping the agenda

bookshops – how they defied expectations to remain relevant in the age of Amazon, and how they’re working with publishers like us to bring readers and authors together

discoverability – what it is, why it matters, and some great new tools to help books get found

And very, very, VERY little on Brexit. Promise.
