Hey guys, me again. So i have an idea but i’m not sure it’s worth messing with. let me know if this sounds interesting enough to bother. So i have a ton of alien races/species in my episodic space comedy, and i like to overthink on the details i may never use in the story. so i thought to myself: hey self, what if i just post a new book on wattpad that’s just dry fun fact about the aliens in my books, like a nature documentary with fun snippets about their anatomy and physiology where it doesn’t really find its way into the comedy books. just a little short, freeform thing where we delve documentary style into the aliens you’ll find in the books.
the real question is…does anyone actually care? does anyone at all give the slightest crap or just me? I already have difficulty finding readers so the only people finding this would be people already reading, and unlikely to attract new readers. So assuming you were a fan of my books and reading them, actually liked the characters, would you remotely investigate a “bonus features” kinda extra about their physiology?
Menace is adorable and fascinating, and most readers love Menace, but does anyone actually give the slightest resemblance of a flying fart, regarding her med chart? does finding out “oh hey, she has no fingerprints or fingernails.” interest you, or is it more like “eh, who cares, she’s adorable and goofy, nobody needs to know weather or not her pupils dilate in light, just write more funny stuff ya weird word-jockey”?
i feel like the only person who cares is me, because i’m both very attached to the characters, and detail oriented, and as a fan of xenobiology and science who’s “on the spectrum” maybe i’m the 1 in a million who finds this stuff interesting. i also have an idea, where my fictional MC would narrate comically sorta like a “nat geo for aliens”, Gizzy story time format, if the content needs a slight humor element.
so let me know if this sounds cool or pointless, and regardless of the other books, would any of you actually go check it out for the fictional science facts? again, if nobody cares i’d like to honestly know before wasting time, but if some of you would truly check it out then it’s not a waste.
