Next Tuesday at the O’Reilly Tools of Change conference, Kassia put together the most excellent panel ever in the history of the world. (Oh really? No – O’Reilly!)
Smart Women Read eBooks, an examination of ebook technology and the savvy female reader, will feature Kassia, who deserves the people’s ovation and fame forever for the proposal itself, plus a few other monstrously cool people.
First: Malle Vallik, Director Digital Content & Interactivity at Harlequin. I call her St. Malle of EBook, and really, she’s a freaking oracle of eBook technology and how it can and should be sold to female readers, particularly readers of romance. If she speaks, it’s pearls of wisdom, people. Recognize.
Plus: Angela James, Executive Editor of Sam Hain Publishing, and a powerhouse of smart when it comes to small press public relations and e-pub growth and sustainability.
Then there’s me, as a reader/reviewer/adopter of ebook technology, and the smacking truth is, while I have definite opinions of how ebooks and readers should do the tango of densual revenue and intimate profits, I’m going to be having a squeefest of my own on this panel, because between Kassia, Malle and Angela, the awesome will not be contained. I might forget to talk (HA!) because I’ll be so busy listening and taking notes.
So if you’re going to be at the conference, please don’t miss this one. I can promise just from reading the email exchange of panel development, the level of epic win on this panel will be legendary.
