This week I “committed Pottermore,” and signed up for the website featuring not only the exclusive place to buy ebook copies of the HARRY POTTER series, but an interactive environment that elaborates and builds on the world of the books. I’ve just scratched the surface of Pottemore so not going to give it much of a review yet, but it has made me think of where we as authors can have the power to go with our intellectual properties. Granted, J.K. Rowling is a big name author with a huge amount of profits and a publishing house behind her. Just like DVDs for bonus content not that long ago coming with books (though that was usually nonfiction), it has me wondering if “bonus content” will become an expectation for readers for any book series – whether it’s a signup required portion of a website or something as elaborate as Pottermore. As a writer currently doing several series, THE WILLOWBROOK SAGA and TRUTH REVEALED, this is a question I find most fascinating and will need to continue to think about.
