Mark Nelson, Strategic Partner Manager & International Lead at Google, will be interviewed during a special keynote event, LIVE during the Publishing Business VIRTUAL Conference & Expo (produced by Book Business and Publishing Executive magazines), Sept. 16 at 10:15 a.m. â€“ 11:15 a.m. ET.
The interview will focus on â€œGoogle Editions,â€ Googleâ€™s forthcoming new service that will allow users to buy digital copies of books they discover through Googleâ€™s book search, and enable book retailers to sell Google Editions through their own sites and share in the revenue from e-book sales. The foundation and distinction of Google Editions versus other online e-bookstores is its â€œcloud-basedâ€ platform, which provides consumers who purchase books with an â€œelectronic bookshelf,â€ so they can access their books anytime, anywhere, from a variety of electronic devices, via the Internet.
Nelson also will share his perspectives on the future of the book industry, among other important issues surrounding a shifting industry in which Google has been a dominant player.
