Meetups And Social Media Networking For Publishers

Posted at 7:07AM Monday 20 Aug 2012

Two young London publishing execs are about to launch a social media networking platform for people in the publishing industry that they believe will match-up needs with skills in a vibrant, dynamic way that doesn't yet exist. BookMachine.me, which will go live in November, will allow users to put up examples of their work or projects, thus making the site more visual and exciting than services like LinkedIn, according to founders Laura Austin and Gavin Summers.
