Good, Better, Best: An Ebook Reader’s Review of Formatting & Design
The DBW Roundtable is a live, interactive webcast featuring some of the most outspoken industry professionals gathering to discuss and debate the hottest publishing issues of today.
In this bi-weekly 1-hour WEBcast, the Roundtable offers insight into the greater book publishing ecosystem with actionable case studies from practitioners in publishing.
Join reading design mavens Peter Meyers & Anne Kostick on August 4th at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT as they fussbudget their way through a bookshelf of titles. Their mission? Read as many ebooks as their eyes can bear—from different publishers, on different devices, and using different apps—in order to smoke out a top-10 list of common formatting and design mistakes.
From nitty gritty annoyances (botched smart quotes) to big picture no-no’s (TOC snafus), they’ll help authors, publishers, and ebook designers avoid the kinds of missteps that turn book lovers into ebook haters. And fear not: this session isn’t just an hour long complaint fest. For each gotcha, Anne and Peter discuss fairly easy to implement alternatives.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- Top 10 common formatting & design mistakes (and how to avoid them).
- What readers want to see in a quality designed ebook.
- How to fix persistent problems in your digital titles.
- Best practices for ebook design.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Ebook designers, authors, publishers, and anyone involved in digital publishing for today’s major platforms.
The Roundtable will be broadcast on August 4th at 1 PM EST / 10 AM PST.
