For fiction there’ll be:
1) Hardcopy books we can’t put down
2) Books that create their own universe (fantasy and sci fi) with huge fan bases
3) Hypertextual and interactive books like Kiss Kill (www.reallybluebooks.com)
Authors will not work in isolation, they will connect with ‘others’ by affinity.
These ‘others’ will want to be involved in the creative process.
The digital book will be an ongoing creation so that the task of the author will be ongoing (through an ongoing series of dialogue)
The boundary between author and reader will dissolve and we will see collective creativity.
Social networking will create networks of influence.
