Mark your calendars for the All About eBooks Symposium on 12 November

I just received the press release for a new ebook conference hosted by the San Francisco Writers University.  It's going to be held in San Francisco on the day before a writing conference (good timing, there). I wish I could go. The detail that caught my eye wasn't the participants but the fact that they're promising some  ereader manufacturers  will have devices on display.From the press release:

With the explosion of opportunities available for publishing a book, now is the best time ever to be a writer. On Friday, November 12th, leaders in the digital publishing revolution will join together at the Hilton Hotel-Financial District at the intersection of North Beach and Chinatown in San Francisco, for a full day of insight and education -- the All About eBooks Symposium. This symposium occurs the day before the third San Francisco Writing for Change conference November 13 & 14.


Mark Coker of Smashwords will join Rob MacDonald of Scribd to explain how authors can publish their eBooks for free. Philippa Burgess of Studio Mythopoeia and Brad Inman of Vook will discuss the future of enhanced eBooks. Successful eBook authors Simon Wood, Carla King and Ransom Stephens will share their stories. And a panel of agents including Nathan Bransford of Curtis Brown, Laurie McLean of Larsen Pomada and April Eberhardt of Kimberley Cameron will be interviewed by Michael Wolf of GigaOM during lunch at Chinatown's famous R&G Lounge. Finally, a panel of eReader manufacturers will discuss their products followed by a hands-on device exhibition and cocktail reception shared with San Francisco Writing for Change attendees and presenters.

The cost of the all-day event, including the luncheon panel, cocktail reception and eReader exhibit, is $199. The event is limited to 75 participants.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
