Announcing the ePublishing Workflow Webinar

PORTLAND, ORE – 18 October 2010 – Beginning January, 2011 a new webi­nar series (http://​bit​.ly/​e​P​u​b​l​ishing) hits the air­waves, offer­ing two days of inten­sive how-to, why-to, and when-to online train­ing in elec­tron­ic pub­lish­ing workflows—the ePublishing Workflow Webinar. With all major pub­li­ca­tions going dig­i­tal, includ­ing New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine and a host of oth­ers, the mar­ket is set for eBooks to take over from tra­di­tion­al pub­lish­ing meth­ods. Colleges and uni­ver­si­ties are releas­ing dig­i­tal ver­sions of their course­ware, and Amazon now offers 630,000 ebook titles on their web site.

Within five years there will be more dig­i­tal con­tent sold than phys­i­cal con­tent. Three years ago, I said with­in ten years but I real­ized that was wrong – it’s with­in five.”
~ Steve Haber, pres­i­dent of Sony’s
dig­i­tal read­ing busi­ness divi­sion
as told to The Telegraph

Pariah Burke, Sally Cox and Steve Dolan present this webi­nar as a solu­tion for those tak­ing the leap into the ebook, e-magazine, and e-catalog domain. “’Print’ and ‘pub­lish­ing’ no longer mean just ink on paper,” says Burke, a 20-year pub­lish­ing and graph­ic work­flow expert. “Publishing pro­fes­sion­als need to embrace that con­cept in order to stay rel­e­vant, to stay employ­able.”

In two six-hour ses­sions, you will learn to cre­ate ebooks and rich media e-publications from a vari­ety of the most pop­u­lar soft­ware appli­ca­tions, includ­ing Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word, Apple Pages and QuarkXPress. Edit and con­trol for­mat­ting using Cascading Style Sheets, export to any of the pop­u­lar ebook for­mats. Add graph­ics and hyper­links to keep the read­er engaged. Learn the dif­fer­ence between ePUB, PDF and Flash for­mats, and get tips on choos­ing the right one for your e-publication.

Once you have cre­at­ed your dig­i­tal pub­li­ca­tions, you will need to mar­ket them. Day Two of this webi­nar shows you how to obtain an ISBN or ASN num­ber, mar­ket your ebook or e-magazine, use the new Amazon plug-in for Adobe InDesign to direct­ly export ebooks to Kindle, and get your pub­li­ca­tions onto the iPad, Android devices, BlackBerry PlayBook and into the ebook libraries of Apple’s iBooks, Amazon​.com, and more.

This infor­ma­tive webi­nar is high­ly antic­i­pat­ed and will sell out quick­ly. Learn more and reg­is­ter for the online event here: http://​bit​.ly/​e​P​u​b​l​ishing
