We’re calling this new TOC webcast series SneakPeeks, and they’ll offer a pre-release look at some of the best publishing tools, platforms and technologies that are about to hit the market.

Our first SneakPeek takes place next Tuesday, May 31st at 1PM ET / 10AM PT and features segments from the following startups: 24symbols, Valobox, Appitude, Active Reader and OnSwipe. Space is limited, so be sure to register now at to take part in this free webcast next Tuesday.

While you’re at it, you’ll also want to register for Michael Tamblyn’s webcast next Thursday (June 2). It’s called, “What Do eReader Customers Really, Really Want?” Michael is an executive vice president with Kobo, Inc. Kobo does extensive customer research and this is your chance to hear what they’ve learned about ereader trends and what matters most to ebook consumers.

Michael’s webcast takes place at 1PM ET / 10AM PT on June 2nd. If attendance at Michael’s past TOC conference sessions is any indication, we anticipate this one will also fill up quickly. So be sure to register now at for this free session.
