Just downloaded a copy of the promising “Paid, Owned, Earned” by Nick Burcher. Actually, I’m carrying it around in my off-line bookbag on O’Reilly’s Safari Online Bookshelf. In the intro, the author lays out the book’s ecosystem:
I don’t know about non-genre fiction, but certainly for fiction, this should be the model for many books moving forward. If books have lives after their publications – errata, new material, improvements between editions – or are intended to spark debate and generate thought, then accompanying blogs, sites with documents and resources, places for conversations, and aggregated resources (links, decks, code, spreadsheets, videos) authors should build it in from the publication stage.
