Write a book: use new forms of media

Want to write a book? You have incredible tools available now to tell your stories (or inform people, in the case of nonfiction) in entirely new ways.

That’s what a small company did to win Best in Show at the South by Southwest Web Awards, in Austin, Texas.

BBC NEWS | Technology | Win for UK story-telling website reports:

“We Tell Stories worked with six authors on new forms of story-telling.

‘They were fantastic and didn’t run away from this. They want to do it again. We need that creative talent, great story telling and want them to be excited about the potential of this new medium.’

Some of the stories use tools like Twitter and weblogs, telling a more conventional multi-platform tale from different viewpoints.

The husband and wife writers Nicci French wrote live for an hour each day for five days, with readers able to see the story unfold one sentence at a time.”

What new forms of media could YOU use in your book? Publishers are ready for you to be truly creative, so use your inspirations.
