BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (PRWEB) February 03, 2016
Author Solutions, LLC, the world leader in supported self-publishing services, announced Wednesday that Keith Ogorek, senior vice president of marketing, is one of several dozen industry leaders taking part in a U.S. publishing mission to Cuba February 12-17. Participants include experts from traditional publishers, book retailers, distributors, conference organizers, media and others from the U.S. publishing industry. Ogorek is one of just two participants from the self-publishing sector.
“I’m honored to be joining this diverse group of publishing leaders on this first cultural exchange,” Ogorek commented, “I look forward to learning more about publishing in Cuba, and sharing ideas with others who have a passion for books.”
Ogorek will join Claribel Ortega from The Combined Book Exhibit and Mark Coker of Smashwords on a panel on self-publishing and the use of social media to market self-published books. Presented by the Havana Book Fair, the panel will take place from 10:30 am – noon EST, Sunday, February at the historic fort in Cuba’s capital city.
The Combined Book Exhibit, Publishers Weekly, Pubmatch and Instituto Cuban del Libro partnered to organize the mission with the hope that the exchange of content, technology and ideas will change the way the U.S. and Cuban publishing industries do business.
