The Crown Publishing Group is releasing thriller author Chris Bohjalian‘s best selling book Secrets of Eden as an enhanced eBook. The print version of Secrets of Eden was originally published back in February.
The enhanced digital edition includes exclusive video and audio content such as a nine-minute author video featuring Bohjalian talking about his writing process. It also includes
an exclusive essay about his creative process, ten reading group guide questions with his answer; and sample chapters from his backlist. The enhanced eBook is optimized for devices that support video.
This is part of Crown’s push into the digital space. Last month, we interviewed Philip Patrick, Vice President & Publisher, Crown Digital, who said that the publisher is experimenting with new interactive eBook titles and apps. The publisher launched The Zombie Survival Guide Scanner app as a marketing tool for the popular Max Brooks title.
