Do you have a summer beach read already picked out? And if so, will you actually pack a paperback in your beach bag this year, or will you read it on a Kindle, iPad or other electronic device?

In Sunday's Washington Post, the venerable papers own ombudsman dealt with rumors of that newspapers eventual demise amidst dwindling circulation and advertising revenue.

Fred Gleeck has some strong opinions, backed up by over 20 years of historical analytics as author and information marketer, that he'll share for the first time in a public forum as he heads into next week's major book industry trade show, Book Expo America, in New York City.

"On Monday May 24th, one day before Book Expo America kicks off, I've assembled an outstanding team of myself and three other industry experts including a major publisher, a media and P.R. firm CEO and a best-selling author and copywriter to address the future of the written word and related information marketing products. Now is the time to talk about where all this is headed, and how to prepare for it, so that authors and others in the book industry don't wind up in the same sad shape the music industry is in,” said Gleeck, whose own books include "Publishing For Profit".

Gleeck says that despite the gloom and doom on the horizon, his team will "reveal a streamlined system to double or triple your Income as an author or publisher," by embracing and incorporating new media solutions along with continuing to offer the written word in traditional formats like books.

Media members and attendees are expected to ask Gleeck (whose rabid followers have coined the term "Gleeckanomics" to identify his business model) about how his own book sales have been affected, what other delivery methods of information he utilizes, what role the internet plays, the age and demographic differences in consuming information, and more.

To request a media interview with Mr. Gleeck or media credentials to attend the Publisher Seminar Monday May 24th at the NYC Seminar and Conference Center, 71 West 23rd Street, Suite 515, contact Allen Media Strategies Catherine Hooks at (703) 589-8960.
