As always on my posting days, I'll draw a random winner from among the commenters to this post. About 48 hours from now, I'll do that and the winner gets a $5 Torquere gift certificate!

I was delighted to have the greatest variety ever for an event like this, with goodies from

This time around I found that folks were hip to ebooks and the new small presses. What they wanted to know about was new publishing models and how to find great books online. From a marketing perspective, that's my takeaway from RI Pride:help your readers find books they'll love by cutting through the thicket of the giant esellers and steering them toward more boutique etailers. This may be no news to some, of course.
