We have just returned from the Taiwan and Delhi Book Fairs. We have bookstores now carrying our books and we have POD partnerships in both countries for selling our authors’ work. Our business task is to “keep showing up”. Here are some pictures and notes about the trip.
We have an entire shelf at this bookstore to sell our books. We believe this will continue to expand. The store is a ‘new concept’ store. It is the lower floor of a children’s educational school. The parents hang out down below, drink coffee and tea, and buy things while waiting on their kids to finish classes.
Here is Kait Neese at a bookstore in Taiwan that we are working with. This company also purchases the Disney and Marvel brands for Taiwan.
This is our signing ceremony with their CEO.
This next picture is the opening ceremony of the American Booth Collective in Taiwan. We all cut the ribbon to open the show. The silver haired gentleman in the middle is our ambassador to Taiwan.
The Taiwan show is quote robust and energetic!
It was a double birthday at our booth!
That is Bob Song, our Beijing partner and the head of international sales for the American Psychological Society.
Street food is always fun. We are at a night market in Taiwan.
Moving on to Delhi now….
Many of you know that Penguin bought Author Solutions.. their new brand is going to be called Partridge.
We continue to be very interested in the Education markets in Asia.
As many of you know, Rockstand is selling our books on their mobile phone platform in India. We had a great meeting with them and they have a rockin’ booth!
As many of you know, we also assist the Beijing Book Fair to sell booths. This is Hersh and MC in India, two of our top employees!
And of course, we are always looking to sell rights and books with the largest companies at the show.
Once again, we thank you for your patronage and look forward to our mutual success!
