Liters users have the opportunity to read books as they are written.

The service of electronic and audio books liters has added a new section “Drafts”. Readers will be able to download new

books in parts, when the author posts them.

Text series

This format really resembles a series.The author writes chapters and publishes them immediately, and readers will be able to comment on them, and in the near future, even suggest their own options for plot development. This kind of communication with users will help writers make their books better and understand what people are interested in. The readers themselves, in turn, will be more interested in reading and will add something of their own to the work they like. General Director of liters Sergey Anuriev says:

"Today, the entertainment industry is on the wayinteractivity - video games and films such as the latest Black Mirror, which allow the viewer to influence the plot, are popular. And now books are also becoming interactive. Such a format is popular, for example, in China, where only the leader of this segment, China Reading, which unites 6 million authors and 200 million readers on its platform, earns about $ 800 million a year from “continuation books”, with all According to expert data, the Russian market is a little over $ 1 billion. ”

Authors can make their books free orask for money for them, set discounts. In this way, beginners or already experienced writers will quickly receive payment for their work, without resorting to the services of publishing houses.

One of the first interactive literature inStephen King (“Riding the Pool,” 2000) and Sergei Lukyanenko (“Transparent Stained Glass,” 1999) tried it on the Internet. However, later this format was forgotten and it did not gain much popularity. Perhaps more people will be interested this time, given the current fashion for interactivity.
