You may have noticed this week has been rather…lacking in posts. It turns out that traveling from Toronto, to home to have LASIK surgery and then to NYC for a conference where you’re giving a presentation (and among all that running and writing a self-editing workshop), well, it turns out that those things take a lot of time and there are only so many hours in one day. So something had to give and it really couldn’t be sleep because that would just be ugly. No one wants to see that.
As we speak, I’m attending the DigitalBookWorld conference in New York City, along with other Carina team members. I appeared on a panel yesterday, and no one heckled me so I think we can assume that the panel was at least moderately successful. Today I get to enjoy being an audience member, and also will get the experience of being surrounded by other tech/publishing people during today’s Apple announcement of the Apple Tablet and whatever else they’ll be announcing. That should be interesting, being able to have conversations about the announcement in real time–in person!
Next week, I will (hopefully) have a better update about Carina Press and all the new happenings we’ve been exploring. Malle and I recorded a podcast while I was in Toronto last week, so I think that’s coming to the blog soon, and later this week I’ll be posting a blog post from a Carina team member you haven’t met yet.
In the meantime, keep those submissions coming and stay tuned for new developments and acquisitions!
