The Survivors in Immersedition is a new immersive form of a book. It is conceived to bring you into the world of a story in ways never before possible—all without leaving the pages of the novel.
The Survivors is the first in a young adult series of five books that follow the life of Sadie Matthau, an immortal girl. It opens in 1692, when witch trials gripped the community of Salem, Massachusetts, and twenty-six children were accused as witches, exiled, and left for dead. Fourteen of them survived. Of the fourteen ill-fated Survivors and their descendants, one has never belonged. While the others have been content to remain isolated on a Montana mountainside through the centuries, only Sadie dares to abandon the family's sacred hiding place. The Survivors is the first installment of the tantalizing tales of Sadie's quest for freedom, mortality, and love.
Readers have described Sadie’s world as one so frighteningly similar to our own that they find themselves wanting to go to the Montana mountains to find the Survivors for themselves. Only now, they can.
The Survivors Immersedition is the pilot launch of Chafie Creative’s revolutionary Immersedition interactive book concept. In this edition, what was a 283-page book becomes an eBook with over 300 touchpoints and over 500 frames of additional information—from the history behind the witch trials, historical documents, interactive maps of book locations, or even runway images of character style, the Immersedition will bring you into the world of The Survivors. From inside the pages of what still feels like a book, guided by watermark icons that tell what kinds of interaction a certain touchpoint elicits, readers can learn the history behind the story, can connect the story world in a way they’ve never been able to before, and they can even talk to the characters on Twitter and Facebook—since the characters have their own accounts—all without leaving the app.
This is the new novel. The Immersedition is a revolution in fiction. Chafie Creative’s unique vision for the future evolutions of storytelling offer an exciting new glimpse into the mind of the author, the world of the story, and the future of media.
