LID Publishing was present at this year’s Digital Book World in New York, the world’s largest gathering of industry practitioners in the digital book space.

Karl Weber, chairman of LID’s US editorial committee, spoke on behalf of LID in a discussion today (15 January) about new business models in publishing. On the same panel with Karl was John Tayman (Byliner), Chris Kenneally (Copyright Clearance Center and chair of panel), Lyron Bennett (Sourcebooks) and Brandi Larsen (Penguin Random House).

Karl presented LID’s model and how it was redefining business publishing in the way LID was providing authors and organisations with a broad array of services (beyond just creating the book) in helping them to communicate their ideas, expertise and brand. In commenting on Karl’s presentation,

Chris Kenneally described LID as offering a “curated experience” to its authors. All the panelists agreed that, in this age of digital publishing, offering authors something different in terms of developing their work and reaching their audience was a critical factor for success for publishers of all genres. “Collaboration” was another key theme in the discussion, for which Karl described the bluebottlebiz digital platform and how this is bringing together both business publishers and readers to repurpose content and consuming it.

The Business Publishers Roundtable is an international association of business book publishers, each representing one language, whose aim is to contribute to the world’s progress, freedom and welfare through the dissemination of ideas for business in different languages. This is translated into practice by the exchange of information on authors’ rights, providing advice to fellow members on their publishing activities and by carrying out copublishing or joint venture projects in order to gain greater visibility and recogition among authors, readers and other publishers.
