Mid Day - - #DEATHTRAP -

We have well and truly en­tered the era of so­cial me­dia, when even phys­i­cal books are be­ing re­leased on Face­book Live. After Amish did the same for Sita: War­rior of Mithila ear­lier this year, it’s now the turn of the folks behind Ter­ri­bly Tiny Tales (TTT) — Chin­tan Ru­parel and Anuj Gos­alia (in pic) — to fol­low suit. AIB co-founder Tan­may Bhat will do the hon­ours for them and launch the of­fi­cial TTT book at a Face­book Live event be­tween 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm on Oc­to­ber 3. It will fea­ture the works of over 100 writ­ers, with each of the 250 tales in the book be­ing 140 words or shorter and hand-picked by a team of cu­ra­tors. Of course, TTT owes its gen­e­sis to the In­ter­net, since it was started as an on­line plat­form for mi­cro-sto­ries. None­the­less, is this a sign that we are mov­ing away from the times when the au­thor would sit in con­ver­sa­tion with a moder­a­tor and a few fans to launch his book? Yes, going by the look of things.
