Live Novel Publishing is the sole publisher of the proprietary Live Novel.

A Live Novel is a mobile storytelling application that turns any story into an open-world, AI-driven, text-based adventure.

Live Novel Publishing was founded in 2020. Since then, the publisher has released several independent Live Novels and launched the Live Novel Digest, which is the world’s first mobile-exclusive literary magazine for interactive fiction.

The Live Novel Publishing team is very small, consisting of two published authors, a full-time editor, a developer, and several volunteers.

The company has two primary goals:

  1. Introducing interactive fiction to a wider audience. By allowing any story to be easily translated to the format, and remove the requirement of multiple branching paths, Live Novel Publishing can quickly create and deploy accessible and engaging interactive fiction. All Live Novels are linear, and can be created from any story.
  2. Making the benefits of reading for pleasure easier to obtain. Reading traditional novels, especially on phones, can be difficult when devices and apps are designed to steal people’s attention. By adding interactivity and shortening prose-length per page to tweet-like bites, Live Novels make it easier readers of all ages to remain engaged.
