This is a busy time at BNGO. We've just begun an interactive ebook project for the Park Avenue Armory and we are pleased to be active in outreach to the publishing community.
I was excited to be asked to speak at the InDesign Conference 2014 in Seattle this past October (http://indesignconference.com/). It was a whirlwind: filling in for a late cancellation, I quickly prepped my portions of a day-long session on ebooks and InDesign. I presented alongside Anne-Marie Concepción, co-organizer of the conference, and Chad Chelius, InDesign trainer extraordinaire. The hall at Adobe headquarters was full of design pros with varying degrees of ePUB knowledge. Lots of ideas were exchanged and many questions were asked — and most were answered, I hope! Many thanks to Anne-Marie and David Blatner for inviting me.
I am now prepping a 4-hour webinar to be presented to the EFA — the Editorial Freelancers Association — on ebooks for editors. The syllabus is still taking shape, but topics will include types of ebooks, devices and apps, how to proofread an ebook, and how to include planning for digital editions at acquisition. We’re currently canvassing the membership as to what topics they’d like to hear about, so we’ll be presenting timely and needed information.
When: tentatively set for consecutive Wednesdays in January
Open to: EFA members and non-members
