If I was a fameus author I oculd publish a back with ten different endings
which all went tn print with varying degrees at rarity, but not tell the fans
about it so that I would watch their as they disagree dyer how the
story ended. Then when they figured it out I would 'come clean', telling them
that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as
they all try to find the last ending.
This is perfect.

this is actually pure genius, isnt this called aggressive marketing?
User avatar #115 to #6 - kratosalza (05/21/2013) [-]
For curiosities sake why would it be considered aggressive marketing?
User avatar #133 to #115 - mulk (05/21/2013) [-]
aggresive as in quickly creating interest, not in the negative way
imagine though if you created a scavenger hunt such as one listed in the content
you would have 80 percent who had the book, with ending a
then 10 percent who had ending b
then 5 with ending c and 5 with ending d

during the reveal, everyone would want to know how the other book ends, thus you would sell the same book, 4 times, to each different reader

sounds pretty aggresive (and if you dont like that term, use profit-making)

well i mean at book stores you can just look at the book before you buy it.....
User avatar #169 to #133 - ipodskateboardp (05/21/2013) [-]
One could argue there would probably be a considerable amount of customer dissatisfaction and bad image after the incident, people asking for the money back or free access to the rest of the content. Furthermore, sales would plummet as newer consumers would be taken aback by the situation and would not want to pay to get just 1 side of the story.

(Besides I feel that novels are a bit different than videogames in the sense that alternative endings are not necessarily welcomed that much)
User avatar #228 to #169 - mulk (05/22/2013) [-]
sure, this could always happen, but if your selling a book that is THIS successful, i dont think that many people would hate the reveal.

but sure of course. you cant please everyone
User avatar #229 to #228 - ipodskateboardp (05/22/2013) [-]
Yeah maybe, dunno, I just tried to imagine if after I just bought and finished reading the last of the Harry Potter books, it was announced that there were in fact 5 different official alternatives to that same book. I personally wouldn't be thrilled about it, maybe its cause when I read a novel I tend to believe that the characters actually exist, and there is never alternative endings in real life :b but thats just my opinion tho !

Next level:
Each book has the protagonist begin with a neutral alignment and as the book progresses, slowly turns into another alignment such as lawful good or chaotic evil.
User avatar #227 to #12 - meganinja ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
or stay neutral and have a very anti-climactic story.

And in the last ending, the rarest one, have the main character die and the bad guy win
#163 to #5 - Visual (05/21/2013) [-]
And only print 1 copy of that special ending for each country the books get released in.
#15 to #5 - mishashiina (05/21/2013) [-]
I'm writing a story like that. Except the main character is a bad guy. Who wins. I'll get a start on the other 10 endings.
User avatar #16 to #15 - sketchE (05/21/2013) [-]
this is relevant to my writing

Just make sure that if you are sucessful, to in each of the endings, to kill off a different character that lots of people love. Then let them debate which one is "Canon" If you run out of people to kill, then have characters raped by the guy no one likes and then end up in either suicide, or having to give birth to the child of the most hated character.

Excellent idea.


Wait... those endings won't be free... right?
#171 - jamesisawesome (05/21/2013) [-]
I'm writing a book now and I've contemplated ending it with the protagonist about to make a choice, then making two sequels, one for each choice. It sounds like fun, but it would take forever to do.
User avatar #174 to #171 - themightymrplow ONLINE (05/21/2013) [-]
That's actually a really awesome idea. It kind of reminds me of the way some anime's do it, like FMA, where they have a non-manga version, and one that more closely follows the manga. I like it.
User avatar #200 to #174 - dedaluminus (05/21/2013) [-]
The reason FMA did it that way is because when they were making the original anime, the manga wasn't finished. Then, after they finished the manga, they had to make another version that was true to the manga.

I thought that's what I said. Either way, it's what I was trying to say. I'm aware that's why it happened, thanks though
#177 to #171 - mattseven (05/21/2013) [-]
I know a book where there are two ways to read it.
You can either :
1 - read them from the first to the ninth
2 - take one of the other paths suggested behind the book
It goes in a diamond shape like in the picture
#179 to #177 - jamesisawesome (05/21/2013) [-]
I must know of this series.
User avatar #197 to #179 - xanderpetty (05/21/2013) [-]
The closest I know of is the Choose Your Own Adventure books
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choose_Your_Own_Adventure
User avatar #180 to #179 - mattseven (05/21/2013) [-]
It's only in french :/ sorry...
User avatar #181 to #180 - yyh (05/21/2013) [-]
Still, what's it called?
User avatar #182 to #181 - mattseven (05/21/2013) [-]
Zoombira, I think it was written by some Canadian french dude. (and there's actually 10 books, the last one being readable after the nineth only)
#219 to #182 - telfyr ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
is that a challenge?
User avatar #220 to #219 - mattseven (05/22/2013) [-]
I didn't intend for it to be, but you won't understand ANYTHING since most of the universe is explained in the first book, and it's pretty complicated too
#222 to #220 - telfyr ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
Plus it's in French, and since this is 'Murica i only speak 'Murican
User avatar #223 to #222 - mattseven (05/22/2013) [-]
Well then, good luck, you're going to need it. French is hard as **** . Even compared to Japanese, French grammar has so many ******* exceptions in it's rules, ****** crazy.

How about a book about a serial killer who kills people reading books about him.

Can you imagine the movie made from the story?
User avatar #129 to #125 - zekeon (05/21/2013) [-]
Eleven different versions go to theaters is varying degrees of rarity.

But at the end of all of them, they say there are actually 12 endings.
