Transmedia Storytelling explores the theories and describes the use of the imagery and techniques shared by producers, authors and audiences of the entertainment, information and brand communication industries as they create and develop their stories in this new, interactive ecosystem. (Goodreads Synopsis)

Transmedia Storytelling is a book I came due via my MOOC on The Future of Storytelling. It is a nice short overview of transmedia methods and definitions and is a good starting place for those with an interest in the topic.

I am only giving three stars and not four, though, as at times I found the writing a little dry. There were some good examples, but I would have liked to have seen a little more life and enthusiasm injected into the writing to help excite the reader about the subject.
