Global Entertainment In The 21st Century

Following is a link to the first draft of, Global Entertainment In The 21st Century, an eBook set for publication in 2018, exploring the convergence of entertainment and technology on a global scale, and redefining the question, “What is entertainment?”

Global Entertainment In The 21st Century – 1st Draft

An excerpt was posted on my Linkedin blog, Global Entertainment In The 21st Century.

The Entertainment Cyberscope
A companion to Global Entertainment In The 21st Century is The Entertainment Cyberscope, a portal, blog and search engine for all things behind-the-scenes in Entertainment. 

The 1st draft of Global Entertainment In The 21st Century is 75 pages.  The final draft will be in the 250-300 page range.

The book is extensively researched and will include a full index and References list.

Publishing Becomes an Immersive Experience
Never before in the history of publishing have authors/creators been able to interact so freely with an audience.  And, because of digital technology, new forms of media turn reading, listening and viewing into full immersive experiences.

A “transmedia” version is being considered, with a fully interactive VR-based website.

What’s great about digital publishing is that corrections, additions and deletions can be made with the updated version of a book (or article) made instantly available.

With sync-based technology, updates can be instantaneous, with updated versions of the eBook available via online on a regular basis.

In the convergence of entertainment and technology, new developments happen almost on a daily basis, so a blog is the best choice to capture these developments.  From there, accumulated updates can then be incorporated into an updated version of the book.

Call To Action
I very much look forward to comments from readers.  Another advantage of going digital is having the ability to interact with readers via social media and email.

Although I’m proud of the independent work I did in writing the book, the idea of a collaborative and interactive relationship with others is extemely appealing.

I look forward to hearing from you.
