‘Transmedia’ storytelling could be the future for some authors

‘Transmedia’ storytelling could be the future for some authors | Litteris | Scoop.it

Omar L. Gallaga:  "The word “transmedia” itself has come to represent a concept that doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone, especially in publishing."

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, January 20, 2013 4:54 AM

An interesting look at transmedia properties which have books as a key component.  In fact, Dynasty of the Magi has just won the award for Best Transmedia Project in the Publishing Innovation Awards.

Parker Donat's curator insight, January 22, 2013 7:30 PM

For business storytelling to be a success there needs to be a good strategy around making money. Given that eBooks and apps are so popular there is a definate opportunity to tell a great story using these platfrorms to create a more engaged community. I haven't bought this book but it seems to really understand transmedia and the use of muliple patforms. And this book, Dynasty of the Magi has just won the award for Best Transmedia Project in the Publishing Innovation Awards

A sample contract agreement between an author and a book cover designer

A sample contract agreement between an author and a book cover designer | Litteris | Scoop.it
I’m not a fan of contracts (or anything binding, or closing doors, or other A-personality stuff). I avoid extra, non-essential work if I can help it. And since I know I will always over deliver, contracts seem like overkill to me.

Some people have a way of making the complex clear.  They know who they are, why they do what they do, and where they want to go. Because they have internalized all this, they are able to sharply crystallize ideas and vision.

Projects that would have seemed impossible 20 years ago are now being accomplished in the blink of an eye. Google Books is legally scanning every book they can get their hands on and the Internet Archive is digitizing every public domain movie, song, book, and webpage..."
