Sourcebooks on Going E

Dominique Raccah, founder of local independent publisher Sourcebooks, talks to Crain's about getting involved in the ebook publishing world. Raccah says that the e-book revolution happened much faster than she expected - in her lifetime instead of her childrens'. She began publishing her first ebooks in 2000 and recently Soucebooks has turned some of their most popular nonfiction books into apps. Raccah's willingness to investigate new publishing formats clearly strengthens her company in a time when publishers all over are working hard to survive.
