Met with a wonderful writer this morning and in addition to her project we started talking about transmedia. Not what I expected when I was going to the meeting but a lot of thought-provoking fun. So I started thinking about a couple of posts I'd read recently about transmedia and thought I'd share. Certainly transmedia isn't for every author, but if you envision your stories, or characters across a number of media platforms, thinking of it as a transmedia project from the outset is probably the best way to capitalize on what you are doing.
The first post is a very useful 5 Stage Development Process for Transmedia Projects, and links to another post on a transmedia business model.
Post number two tells us that Transmedia Requires a New Breed of Writers, Publishers.
While you are there check out the Digital Book World site. It's full of interesting material about how publishing in the 21st Century is developing.
