Book project – by fans for fans!
A while back now I had an idea to compile a book where the book would map out the Winchester Brothers Journey and showing a map with each episode guide and pinning the journey on a map where they had been. I remember talking about it to Lou and going off the idea because of the shear work load involved, now with 10 seasons to pen. I also knew a similar book was already out on the market but only went up to Season 7, with a view on preempting Season 8. The Essential Supernatural – ‘On the Road’ with Sam and Dean Winchester, written by Nicholas Knight with a forward by Eric Kripke. Also with Superwiki and other sites holding information about the show. So this idea went into the back of beyond in the deepest forest of my mind somewhere, until yesterday. Lou had the thought ……
Remember when we were talking about a book about the show??? Maybe we can start talking again. You have a nice number of writers under your wing right now. Maybe we can get everyone involved so the workload wouldn’t be so much?
This thought spurred me on, which is why I’m writing to you all in the hope that once again you might say YES to my idea, are you IN?? Of course if the book gets published, I will share the proceeds 10 ways evenly! I thought writing a blog post was the easiest and quickest way to get my words out there. So what do ya ‘all think am I barking!!
So here is my template:
- We each individually take on a season and do a review of that season.
- We MAP that journey of what towns they go into and do a bit about that town
- What motel rooms they stay in
- We highlight the Monster
- We highlight the case research as canon
- We highlight how the boys kill the Monster
- We highlight the lives saved on that hunt
- We tally up the miles from job to job
- We follow the case as much as we can among the review
- We list the danger the boy’s face during this case and how they escape it
- The characters they meet and the actors behind those roles
I have mapped out a season list of whom I thought might want to do what season. But wanted to see what you throw back at me first. With the exception of Bella season 2 . I have other plans for the book, but collectively as a project I thought it would be an awesome idea. A book written by fans, FOR FANS! An encyclopaedic view of ALL our talents rolled into 1 hard backed glossy book. Could we do it. I am very excited about this, doing the project as a group.
The project is wide open so if anyone would like to be included in this project and bag a season leave a comment in the box below or write to me in person at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me know as soon as, so we can get the ball in motion!
Love Bella xxx
