Hypermodern books, often shorter than traditional novels and designed to be read on smartphones or tablets, have emerged as a new literary trend defined by technology and social media use.

Hypermodern publishing is not just about how a book looks – it’s also about using technology to reach readers. Some hypermodern publishers use online platforms such as Wattpad – where people can share stories – to connect with readers and get feedback.

The word “hypermodern” is used in many ways. However, if we’re talking about books and publishing, it usually means something that uses the latest technology and ideas.

This new technology has brought a new relationship between the reader and the publisher. Readers can now talk directly to authors or publishers and even have a say in how a book develops.

The term “hypermodern” is still being defined, as it’s relatively new. But generally, hypermodern books are thought to use cutting-edge tech (often social media), be brief (sometimes for phone/tablet reading), and try to engage readers.

This has been exciting in terms of discovery and creative surprise; some genuinely groundbreaking novels have already emerged from hypermodernism in the past few years alone.

One of the most significant movements in our industry right now is hypermodernism, which enables more creativity and exploration than ever before, with some genuinely groundbreaking – even game-changing – books hitting shelves.

It’s changing how we think about books and publishing. It’s opening up new possibilities for writers and readers. And it isn’t going away any time soon – nor should it if it continues to shape the future of books and publishing as it currently does.
