Lightning Source Chief on the Book Industry

By | December 2, 2008

In June, the Ingram Content Companies announced a new organizational structure called Ingram Lightning Group to provide better coordination among the Ingram businesses that serve publishers, librarians, booksellers and other creators and consumers of printed content throughout the industry. The new entity brings Lightning Source Inc. together with the companies now comprising the Ingram Book Group. As part of the move, David Taylor, who was Lightning’s Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Managing Director of Lightning Source UK, became President of Lightning Source within the new Ingram Lightning Group structure. WhatTheyThink spoke with Taylor recently and the interview is now online.

    I wonder if they’ve done some internal workflow tweaking, as well? I use Lightning Source for my Strong Tower Publishing titles (I have eight or nine titles and most of them are at zero inventory), and within the last month, I’ve noticed that books are being printed and shipped within 24-48 hours. Or maybe it’s just the economy, so there aren’t as many books in the queue . . .
