“One of the most exciting things about working on book-related websites, especially fiction-related ones,” says Raab, “is the potential to extend the story in some way, to create something that can be seen as a companion piece to the book. The site for Reif Larsen’s novel, The Collected Works of T.S. Spivet, is a good example—there is lots and lots of original content, written by the author, that expands on themes and plot lines in the book.”
