I searched, honest!! Due to my programming and photography experience, the temptation to create a website for my trilogy is strong. I could easily add a forum, wiki for enhanced backstory, downloadable content like screen savers or desktop images, etc. Is this a good, bad or ugly idea? (Phew not sure what I typed then but the screen went blank after I hit escape and I would like to buy the person who implemented autosave on this forum a beer). If down the track the most amazing thing ever happened, and someone agreed to publish the books (or I went the self-publishing route) or adapted them to screen play for movie production, would the existence of the website have any potential negative impact on that outcome? The reason why I would like to do this: * assuming I sell copies of the novels: to get feedback and potentially build a bit of a community * for marketing / sales purposes * tie-in to the movie idea I have Interested to know what people think. Too pretentious? Waste of time? Good, bad or ugly? Thanks!
