Our CEO Speaks ... don't they all?

This is Genene Miller Coté, our CEO. I just returned from the Colorado Independent Publishers' Association Conference where Genene gave a talk about eBooks. The crowd of authors, self-publishers and independent presses listenened with rapt attention, as Genene told us the story of the eVolution of eBooks; Where they've been, where they're going, and why every book should be available as an eBook. The crowd listened attentively, and asked many questions at the end of Genene's pitch.

This gave me the opportunity to indulge my inner geek. There was a huge screen in the exhibit hall, and a projector linked to someone's laptop. As luck would have it, the laptop belonged to Dr. Judith Briles, one of the authors featured at the DPPstore (click on the link to the right to see her featured title, "The Confidence Factor.") With that equipment available, we decided to throw together a powerpoint presentation. The presentation is a good summation of Genene's speech. To learn more about the history of eBooks:

Thanks to all of the fantastic people at the Colorado Independent Publishers' Association, this weekend's meeting was great fun, as well as function! I look forward to future opportunities to participate with CIPA, and I hope you all sell millions of your books ... Don't forget to list your eBooks in the DPPstore!
