Premiere hybrid publisher LifeTree Media accepted the getAbstract International Book Award 2016 with author Robert Tercek at the Frankfurt Book Fair on Wednesday, October 19, for Vaporized: Solid Strategies for Success in a Dematerialized World. The book was one of four titles chosen by the getAbstract team from more than 10,000 English and German non-fiction books to receive the only international business related book award at the Fair.
Vaporized offers business success strategies for companies facing the threat of dematerialization in the digital economy. Called “unique, singular, and unmatched in its insight,” the book is the product of decades’ work and research by Tercek: a sought-after digital media pioneer who has launched online platforms and developed digital products and services for, amongst others, Sony Pictures Entertainment, MTV and Oprah Winfrey.
“We are thrilled to receive international recognition by getAbstract, especially on the eve of the company’s third anniversary,” said Maggie Langrick, Publisher and President of LifeTree Media, who was in Frankfurt to accept the award alongside the author. “We are actively working to elevate hybrid publishing and validate it as a credible emerging model in this fast-changing industry.”
Founded in 2013 by veteran editor and journalist Langrick, LifeTree Media delivers premium editorial services on a fee-for-service basis to high-caliber experts, and publishes their work to the book trade under its imprint. Its editorial mandate is to publish non-fiction books that help, heal and inspire, in categories such as business, health, self-help, parenting and psychology.
LifeTree rigorously develops every title with market tastes and trends in mind. “Highly successful professionals know that publishing a book is the best way to accelerate their business and promote their brand,” said Langrick, “but self-publishing can’t always get them the market penetration or credibility they need. Putting out a book that rivals the product of traditional publishing houses is essential for our clients.”
The company’s carefully selected publishing list punches above its weight, achieving critical acclaim and bestseller status for its authors. In addition to the getAbstract award for Vaporized, other successes include Discipline Without Damage by Dr. Vanessa Lapointe (Toronto Star bestseller), and Shell, by Michelle Stewart, (shortlisted for the 2015 Tom Fairley Award for Excellence in Editing).
LifeTree Media’s upcoming releases include Resolve: Negotiating Life’s Conflicts with Greater Confidence, by Hal Movius PhD (January 2017), The Digital Matrix: New Rules for Business Transformation Through Technology, by Venkat Venkatraman (January 2017), and The Sacred Path of the Soulmate: Embracing True Romantic Love, by Gerald Sze (May 2017).
