The first Book Summit will be held on September 29, 2005, at the Sheraton Park Ridge, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. The summit brings together industry visionaries for a round table discussion about the future of publishing as influenced by the dynamics of changing roles. Author-originated publishing is empowering authors with more control over their books. Printers are becoming distributors. Publishers are becoming retailers. Bookstores are becoming publishers. Niche retailers are becoming booksellers. The market is increasing with more titles being published but generating less revenue. The expanding roles have the ability to put fair profits back into publishing. The registration fee for an industry seat is $395. Publishing professionals are welcome in the gallery of this historic event for a $95 advance registration or $125 at the door. More info: http://www.booksummit.com.
