You could hardly find somebody standing nearer to the center of the intersection of “discoverability” and “know thy consumer” than Dan Franklin.
As Digital Publisher to the Penguin Random House empire, he has responsibilities with the Vintage, Penguin General, Cornerstone and Penguin Press divisions. He could be forgiven for needing something of a map to get around PRH’s new My Independent Bookshop.
Have you seen it yet? @MyIndieBookshop, as it’s known on Twitter, is a colorful, robust promenade of book discoverability in which participants create their own bookshops of favorite reads. They also send percentages of sales to actual stores they choose to support.
