  • Started out of Huge Inc’s secretive Labs program, Togather is a new platform that wants to empower authors to book (and fill) talks, signings and lectures based on demand from fans. They call it “fansourcing.” Here’s how Togather works: Authors let the public know when they’re ready and available to talk. From there, anyone is free to propose an event, but it will only happen if there’s enough interest and if the author’s criteria is met (X # of reserved books, tickets purchased or RSVPs). It’s a system that could work extremely well in a number of verticals, but is currently focusing on taking on the publishing industry by taking the pain out of tours.
