This past year I’ve been busy branding a new reading experience format, shopfiction™, that will allow readers to shop their favorite characters’ clothes and home decor! In a previous post, I shared all about how this idea came to me. In this post, I’m excited to explain how shopfiction™ will work.

My novel, Waiting at Hayden’s, will be published on July 10th and will be released in both print and digital formats.
Digital: In the digital version of the book there will be links throughout the text anytime a character’s outfit is mentioned. Simply connect your e-reader to wifi, click on the link, and you’ll be directed to a photo of the character wearing the exact outfit mentioned (and standing in the exact setting she is described in!) Beside the picture, there will be links to Shop the Book™. In addition, at the end of seven chapters there will be links to watch key scenes unfold. Beneath each video clip you’ll find a lookbook with photos of the characters in each outfit that was seen in the video and links to shop all the looks you loved.
Print: In the hardcover and softcover versions of the book, there will be web addresses at the end of the seven chapters. Type these links into any browser to watch the same key scenes unfold and to shop the characters’ looks.
It’s been surreal to bring Waiting at Hayden’s to life in this way after ten years of working on this love story. I hope it makes your reading experience one you won’t forget. Stay tuned for more details and for sneak peeks of what’s to come. I can’t wait for you to meet the cast of Waiting at Hayden’s. Mark your calendars for July 10!!
