Re: hovertext: That's a really brilliant marketing campaign, right there... -- (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I'm not sure if it would have any marketing effect, but it definitely sounds as good idea. It doesn't need to be that clever at first either - just posting random sentence from next page is not that likely to be interesting, but even with 2% of success it would help a lot. -- Hkmaly (talk) 22:07, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

I wouldn't be very surprised to see a book where each chapter actually started with a breaking news story. The reader would generally be following the protagonist around, but the articles would show what the rest of the world knows and so either show that something the reader knows is not widely known, or fill the reader in on events that are part of the plot, but where the protagonist was not present.

Here's an idea. What if there was no "book" at all, but the story was pushed to your device in real-time coinciding with the unfolding of the plot. The push could happen either night or day depending on what is going on in the story. Rtanenbaum (talk) 12:57, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

That’s a series of apps named Lifeline.
