Former Prentice Hall Regents President Bruce Butterfield has joined the Board of Directors at digital publishing house FastPencil.
Butterfield, who is currently CEO/President of The Whitfield Group, stated: “FastPencil is a welcome breath of fresh air in an industry that is undergoing an unprecedented change and I’m excited to be a part of helping shape FastPencil’s future growth. Together we will continue to make FastPencil the ‘author’s best friend’ while expanding the services and benefits to more established writers and best-selling authors.”
FastPencil CEO Steve Wilson told us last month that the future of publishing will be centered around social communities that connect authors with readers. It will be interesting to see how the addition of a more traditional publishing veteran will help shape this future.
