Wow, time flies! It's been about a year and a half since Tom and I first started development on Literarium, and a lot has happened since then. During this time we have researched the latest web development technologies, experimented with a number of system designs, and have met a bunch of interesting people in the literary community who have provided us with some fantastic feedback that will drive the direction of the product.
So what is this Literarium product anyways?
For those who may be unfamiliar with what Literarium is, it's an online system that aims to make the business of writing easier. Our goal is to provide people in the literary industry with a set of tools to help with the day to day process of running a literary business, as well as providing a means to connect people via a free and extensive markets and services directory.
The first release of Literarium will be focused mainly on the writer with an initial toolset that will aid with the management of projects, and the tracking of finances, tasks, and submissions. We also intend to have a markets and services directory up and running from day one with a generous number of contacts to get you started.
Sweet! So where are you at?
Well, up until now it's been difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have some pretty ambitious plans for Literarium in the future, so we've spent a lot of time on skilling up and making sure our design is right. Now that we're confident that we're on the right track we are starting to work on the user interface of the system, so within the coming months we'll be posting screen shots of our efforts.
We'll continue to provide you with interesting blog posts and updates on Literarium's development. Please don't hestitate to contact us with any suggestions and feedback that you may have.
