So I've been thinking about this for a while and wanted to get your opinion on it finally.
I was thinking about the way that other authors will tend to make fan pages, and blogs, just for their books (or series) as a way for fans to interact more with them, and the like.
So I was wondering YOUR opinions on doing just that for my books as well
Instead of just having it a fan page, the thing I would do was take it one step further. I would include "lost diaries" or "deleted scenes (lost pages)" much in the same way that movies now have a behind-the-scenes ability with their DVD's where you can explore and watch other parts of the movies being made.
Now obviously the blogs/fan pages would end up with the similar ideas of updates on the upcoming releases, deals, etc., however, I'd take it one step further and make it so that people who purchased the book and were fans, would have the ability to go there to the sites and read actual lost entries from the books characters. Even diary entries that the characters write, or letters to other characters, which you may not read about, or see, in the books, but you can on their OWN personal site! Bringing them to life even more so for the people who enjoy reading up on them, or helping them stick around in ways that the books can't.
What do you think?
Any other ideas/suggestions, feel free to offer some.
