In this exclusive interview, Matt Cavnar, Head of Acquisitions at Vook, discusses publishing innovation, production for books, and a new product, Mother Vook.
From the interview:
I think that books remain the ultimate random access memory. A book is still something that you can pick up anywhere and have immediate information. Nothing digital beats that yet. I think that whatever you’re reading digitally it’s still a book, it’s just becoming a better way to get information.
I think publishers are more open to innovation than people suspect. I also think that a lot of the really cool stuff that’s going to come out is going to come from an author working with someone in digital media production, whether that be a filmmaker, a video editor, a music producer. When the two media join up, that’s when we’re going to see the really cool new products coming.
