Our founder, J.M. Haines, was a busy mother of three looking for her next professional adventure. As both an author and an avid reader, J.M. had a love for the magic of the written word, which she hoped to instill in her children as well. She had also always been fascinated with technology and was not surprised how much her children loved spending time in front of their screens.
With the all pervasive nature of technology in her own children’s lives, J.M., watched traditional and digital publishing platforms struggle to truly engage children who would rather watch YouTube® or play Fortnite®
Then it hit her – what if there was a way to build a bridge between books and the cutting edge technology of the day, augmented and virtual reality? Could books move to the next level by using technology to allow readers to “step inside”?
J.M. set out to do just that and founded Quantum Storey®, the first extended reality (XR) technology company to combine AR, VR, and AI with the printed page. To demonstrate the potential of their platform, J.M. penned a new series for middle readers, Operation YOU®, and published her first title, Morning Nightmare which was featured on the “Best Sellers” shelf in 4200 Walmart stores nationwide!
Quantum Storey® launched their first Hollywood Studio title with SONY Pictures, Hotel Transylvania 3: Virtual Vacation, and recently added several new Hollywood studios and major publishing brands to its portfolio!
