Books and Publishing in the Digital Age
Paper, Print & Pixels is a blog that offers news and critiques on books and the publishing industry in the digital age.
Mobile devices, electronic platforms, and digital tools have transformed the book publishing industry. The rise of ebooks and ereaders has inspired a new way of developing books that utilize digital media for an enhanced reading experience. Multimedia storytelling is an example of what the future of books can be, however, the preference for physical books will continue to keep publishers in demand.
Access to authors, publishers, and agents through social media networks means that readers have the chance to establish relationships in the writing community or even just connect with their favorite writers.
The book publishing industry that previously resisted digital media has now learned to embrace and understand how new technologies can usher in a new chapter in the industry’s imminent future.
