DVDs these days come packed with extra features — commentary, documentaries, deleted scenes, bloopers, etc. Now author Lewis Perdue is experimenting with doing the same thing for books, starting with his novel THE PERFECT KILLER. To give his readers a sense of the people, places and details in the story, he’s created a page-specific online index with photos, videos, maps, links, and other information. You could read his book with your laptop open beside you and click along with the story. For instance:
Page 229, He sprinted the dune
trail, south toward Spooner’s Cove, but the past matched his pace
Page 230, sight
of a man and a boy of maybe ten
Page 235, San Luis
It’s a cool idea. Will it catch on? Who knows…buttake a look and let Lew know what you think.
