Publishing a Book in 48 Hours
Perseus Books Group is "asking the world to write the first sentence for a yet-to-be-written sequel to any book ever published" as part of a "collaborative effort to publish--during the span of the 2009 BookExpo--a book that highlights the new 'possibles' in our business. A book that will be created . . . collaboratively. A book that will be published into as many formats as possible in about 48 hours." BEA attendants will be able to watch the publishing process unfold on a real time basis. Royalties from sales of the resulting book will go to the National Book Foundation.
