Beyond The Book Podcast: The Future of Independent Publishing

There is a new podcast from Copyright Clearance Center’s Beyond the Book, which features an interview with Executive Director of Small Publishers Association of North America (SPAN) Scott Flora and Winoca Books  & Media founder Barbara Brannon. In a pointed discussion on the future of independent publishing, Flora emphasizes SPAN’s mission to create a new, more distinguished class of independent publishers with better professional product and improved access to distribution and bookstores. To this end, SPAN and Winoca Book & Media will form a committee this summer to develop the Professional Independent Publisher (PIP) with the aim of providing certifications to independent publishers. CCC encourages publishers and supporters to voice their opinion of the program and comment on the discussion on the CCC Facebook Fan Page – http://www.facebook.com/BeyondTheBook
