… and special guest
Est-ce que notre Président veut aller défendre le livre qui serait primé par le Prix Planète SF ?We want to raise the level of communication between such publishers as regards socialising and making exchanges and collaborations easier. The goal: to increase the number of books translated from and into all the European languages.
The extent and depth of this meeting will depend on the number of small presses which sign up.
Prepare to talk for 5 minutes about one book which you specially recommend (or about two books within 5 minutes). The book or books must have originally been written in your country’s tongue and published by your press
We are looking for those special, original books with sales potential which deserve to be translated, the jewels of your catalogue. You will need to explain to the rest of the European publishers what makes this book attractive and suitable for foreign readers, preferably using brief key concepts and market hooks.
Also, don’t forget to bring your business cards, pamphlets, catalogues, merchandising material, and maybe some books to give away. We will have a nice cosy socialising space, some Spanish books to give away, and snacks.
