Todd Stocke is vice president and editorial director of Sourcebooks, a leading independent book publisher based in Naperville, Illinois. As editorial director, he oversees every Sourcebooks imprint and the company's efforts in every category, including most areas of nonfiction, fiction, romance novels, mixed-media, calendars, young adult, and children's books. A native of Minnesota, he got his start in publishing at renowned fiction and poetry house Coffee House Press and was a bookseller before he began at Sourcebooks in 1994. Todd was editor of We Interrupt This Broadcast, the format-breaking mixed-media book that was Sourcebooks' first New York Times bestseller, and its follow-up, And The Crowd Goes Wild, one of the bestselling sports anthologies ever. During his time at Sourcebooks, he has overseen the growth of its list from 10 new titles a year to its current annual output of 300. He will conduct advanced reading appointments and consultation appointments and present, "The Author's Platform." What is an author's "platform," how and why is it considered by editors, and what does it matter to the success of a book? More importantly, we'll talk about how to build up your own platform and best present yourself to editors.
