Over at Goodreads I’ve posted some free bonus content for A Season of Whispers.
I did an extensive amount of historical research for the book, and while writing it I left a trail of breadcrumbs for myself in the margins. If you’re curious about the context of a certain passage or phrase, now you can read those breadcrumbs for yourself.
Goodreads has a feature in which you can share the notes and highlights made on your Kindle with others. You need to link your Kindle and Goodreads accounts to create the notes but once they’re made public, anyone can read them.
I’ve made a bunch of annotations to A Season of Whispers that explain many of the historical and literary references in the story, which you can read here. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the book yet — spoilers are hidden unless you want to see them.
The notes can also be accessed by scrolling down on the book’s Goodreads page to the section labeled Featured Notes & Highlights.
I don’t believe the notes pop up unannounced on your Kindle. You can only read them through Goodreads. They’re free to access and you don’t need a Goodreads account.
And if you have a question that isn’t answered by the current notes, feel free to reach out. I’ll be adding more notes over time.
