Bringing the best practices of book publishing to the new technology.
When Henry Ford devised the manufacture of the Model T and a retail system to sell it, he based them on one kind of car. When technology scientists devised the manufacturer of the eBook and an online retail system to sell it, they based them on one kind of eBook. And therein lay future editorial chaos.
CONTENT. Ah, yes, that pesky critical factor carried over from the world of traditional book publishing. Content matters. No two books are the same. No two authors are the same. No two readers are the same. A bestselling book does not mean it is the best book; a bestselling writer does not mean he or she is the best writer. Everyone has an opinion, everyone has their own tastes—so why on earth would anyone settle for an eBook system where no one can find anything? Where readers are constantly being told what to read and never allowed to browse on their own?
Quality of content and reader discovery are everything at Author & Company, and quality of content and reader discovery informs everything we do. We’re on the cutting edge of technology, yes, but we are book lovers first.
