Trident Media Group Launches eBook Division

Trident Media Group, the literary agency representing Deepak Chopra, Paris Hilton, Jon Stewart, Tori Spelling and a long list of other authors, has launched Trident E-Book Operations.

The new division will “create, manage and implement innovative e-book strategies including the distribution of a variety of e-books directly to a large number of e-tailers in North America and internationally.” In addition, they will consult with authors about everything from digital design to social media to exploring new relationships with “traditional and non-traditional publishers.” Lyuba DiFalco and Nicole Robson have been appointed co-directors of e-book operations.

In the release, Trident chairman Robert Gottlieb explained: “Trident will not become a publisher, but will instead continue in its new e-book operations to have itself aligned with its clients whose interests we serve as an agent and manager.”

Douglas Rushkoff on the Future of Writing

LifeInc_1.jpg
This morning author Douglas Rushkoff joined mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu for an interview about Iran, media conglomeration, Twitter, and his new book, “Life Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take It Back.”

You can listen to the whole show at BlogTalkRadio. New York readers can actually meet Rushkoff this evening at his open source book party co-hosted by SMITH magazine, WFMU and ARTHUR magazine.

Here’s a Rushkoff quote from the Morning Media Menu: “The Paris Hiltons of writing have for the last decade or so done a lot better than the writers of writing. It makes it very tempting to look at our own careers through that corporatist lens … through the external value you can create for some company, rather than the genuine value you can create for people who read what you’re writing.”
