Choose Your Own Adventure Meets Digital Publishing

If you listened to the Elitzr podcast interview with our CEO Brad Inman, you know that we’re committed to inspiring creativity through interactivity. By breaking the mold with our format, we make it possible for authors, filmmakers and readers to let their imaginations run wild.

Today eBookNewser posted an announcement about another company using technology to amp up creativity.  Unknown Tales takes the typical Choose Your Own Adventure model and turns it into a collaborative, digital fiction-writing experience. Choose from a variety of genres, select a story and start reading what others have written. When the text ends, you can opt to reserve the next chapter.

The site will put a lock on your reserved chapter for an hour–or longer if you need more time. A perfect tool for writers with minimal time, or readers looking for a more engaged experience. It’s kind of like the Wikipedia of digital publishing. We wonder if it will eventually have that far a reach. What do you think?
