PROTECTING US FROM PIRATES—Does that sound like a fanciful introduction to a children’s adventure story? Hardly. Our entire publishing house team—including all of our authors—need to be wary of the dark forces lurking online, including real-life pirates. In our Front Edge Publishing column this week, Production Manager Dmitri Barvinok reports on the dangerous waters publishers encounter when pirates strike.
Director of Production Dmitri Barvinok explains how our unique design-and-production software allows Front Edge Publishing to rapidly and flexibly customize and update books, using the five-year evolution of our best-seller Changing Our Mind as a case study. Many of the most important stories in our world today are changing faster than traditional publishing can adapt. Our specialty is keeping pace with those changes so our authors can be an active part of these vital global conversations.
