If you got the opportunity to write an author edition of one of your books, what deleted scenes or extras would be included?
"That’s a hard question, because I try hard to put the deleted scenes out of my mind. I really do believe the finished product is the book that was meant to be out in the world, so I’m not really hung up on deleted scenes. I would like to (and probably will, on my website!) share a soundtrack to Meant to Be. Music is really important to the story, and also to me as a writer, so look for that!" - Lauren Morrill, author of Meant to Be.
"Extras would include select spreads from scrapbooks such as these ones I made for Sea Hearts/The Brides of Rollrock Island. Deleted scenes I wouldn’t restore; there’s usually an excellent reason why they were deleted. I might include a short story or two recycled from a deleted scene, though." - Margo Lanagan, author of The Brides of Rollrock Island.
"None. I kind of hate that stuff. I get really into books and movies, so when new stuff is released that isn’t included in the final product, I go, “Is this official? Did this really happen to the characters?” Like alternate endings on DVDs—what is the actual ending? I want to know. Tell me. Does Will Smith really blow himself up with a grenade or did he make it out alive?" - Dan Krokos, author of False Memory.
"With Devine Intervention, the author's edition would come with a fresh, hot corn dog." - Martha Brockenbrough, author of Devine Intervention.
