Last year as part of my promotion for Legacy of Ghosts I posted six “Lost Chapters” or “Deleted Scenes”. These weren’t really deleted scenes, but rather snips I wrote later for the purpose of promotion. Though there is no “necessary” information in them, they are amusing after a fashion, and someone asked me if I was planning to release a “Director’s Cut” of the book with those six scenes “put back in”.
If I did this, I think what i would do is create a webpage with a question that only someone who had read the book would know the answer to, and a correct answer would give you a download code to get a free copy of the Director’s Cut because there’s no point in someone who has already purchased the book having to buy another version just for kicks. I couldn’t price it as a flat out free because I know if I were looking to buy a book and saw the original version for 2$ or the expanded version for free I’d pick the freebie version – more for less and all that.
But, the question is, is it worth the effort of plugging them in, uploading it to Smashwords (only) and having hubby make the question webpage?
It appears they have a different way of dealing with the chuppacabra menace in Siberia, however. According to an article from Moscow News. com:
“All the people are scared, they fear that the creature will move onto children,” the head of the village said. “We have organized night patrols of six people. We walk through the village, on the look out for this wickedness. But so far we have had no results.”
So why do they think there’s a chupacabra in their midst? Apparently farmers and small shareholders near Novosibirsk have been waking to find their goats dead. Puncture marks and a lack of blood led the locals to declare it was the vampire-like monster.
But isn’t the chupacabra a South American legend? Thanks to globalization, it is now a legend that any country can embrace. Of course, Discovery News reported in 2010 that Texas’s chupacabras were only wild dogs with a deadly form of mange, who knows? Maybe Russia will have better luck.
