Publishers Launch – Launches

David Nussbaum

By David Nussbaum, CEO, F+W Media

Congratulations to our good friends and partners – Mike Shatzkin and Michael Cader – on the creation of their new joint venture, Publishers Launch. Since the inception of Digital Book World, Mike and Michael have been guiding voices, powerful advocates, and key players in helping us to shape our Digital Book World programming and outreach to the global publishing community.

We are excited to extend this important partnership to the new Publishers Launch series of events. Digital Book World and F+W Media will serve as producing partners for Publishers Launch, and we will work together on other F+W Media-owned events, including the inaugural StoryWorld Conference in San Francisco this October.

In the coming weeks and months we will be telling you more about this partnership — and about our new StoryWorld Conference. To learn more about the entire Publishers Launch program, see Mike’s recent blog post here –  or visit
