This has been the year that says goodbye to Harry Potter, once in print and now in the movies. The theaters have also been filled with fans of SuperHeroes who began life on the printed page. In the games category, “World of Warcraft” and other role-playing games have reached epidemic popularity. Now we are seeing the marriage of these trends with authors who brave the task of writing an interactive novel. Reading adventurers are thirsty for new worlds to explore, something that is captivating and mind-stimulating.

Author Bonn Turkington makes a bold first foray into the fantasy genre. He’s undertaking the task of creating a series in which readers can participate in the development of the story.

In a new era of digital entertainment and traditional publishing, Velwythe: Resurrection of the Mind is born. From Facebook to twitter, blogs, and wikis, Velwythe is a living, breathing world that you can be a part of, and one that you can change.

Bonn reaches out to young readers through interviews, book signings, and school presentations, where he meets with students and introduces his interactive novel project. Fans are working with Turkington to create the world and happenings that the characters live within, both verbally and visually.

He encourages fans to help create characters and interact with those of Velwythe. They can read the “local paper” on the website to see what’s going on, send emails to the characters, help create situations for the storyline to travel through, even submit artwork based on what they think people and places within Velwythe look like.

Is this a big undertaking? Yes, it is! Bonn admits that there is a lot of work involved in the creation of the world surrounding his story on such a grand scale, but with the help of Thinx Group Publishing Coalition, he is able to achieve this daunting task.

His goal is to encourage others to be creative and participate with many others as the interactive novel finds new life and direction.
