The Art of Mobile Storytelling

Using Kickstarter, the gaming company Six to Start raised over $72,000 to release Zombies, Run! early next year. The storytelling app for Apple and Android smartphones will convert your jogging workout into an interactive zombie story (video embedded above).

Smartphones and tablets have opened a whole world for publishers, and the most inventive writers have moved the story into the real world.  Six to Start CEO Adrian Hon is a featured speaker at our Publishing App Expo December 7-8, sharing advice about “Mobile, Real World and Audio Storytelling.”

If you are working on a budget, you can register for a one-track pass to focus on the Book App track that includes the zombie presentation.
