For Every Lover of Coming Attractions, a New E-Book Site, deadwithilsa.com, Intrigues and Entertains

Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Andy Petroski - Independent Multimedia Developer

    HARRISBURG, Pa., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- A new e-book web site,
 deadwithilsa.com, operates very much like a coming attraction for a movie.
 The site promotes the novel, Dead with Ilsa, and provides readers with a
 virtual companion piece to the e-book.
     The site offers readers an intimate perspective of the novel through
 games, a chat room, character illustrations, an essay competition with a prize
 for the winner, a free sample chapter, reader reviews, and a fan club with a
 free screensaver.  The information, media, and interactivity is available to
 readers before purchasing and downloading the novel from the site (for $6.95).
     "Dead with Ilsa is a dark, futuristic, sometimes-humorous journey through
 the afterlife of Aimels Johnson in an alien-inhabited city called Graymin,"
 says its author Josh Petroski, 28, who is an actor based in Baltimore, MD.
 "Opposing influences combine to create a conflict between good and evil.  In
 the end, as Graymin evolves into a murderous and hateful land, Aimels must
 choose between the two."
     The site was designed and developed by Josh's brother, Andy Petroski, 30,
 a multimedia developer.
     "This is the DVD of Internet publishing," says Andy Petroski.  "The site
 provides preview information about the novel and an entertainment value for
 both readers and non-readers.  We incorporate animation, graphics, and sound
 unlike anything we have seen for an online e-book."
     Both brothers quit their jobs last year to pursue separate entrepreneurial
 paths, but worked together to create the site for the e-book.  Josh is now
 devoted to a full-time career as an actor and author, while Andy has started
 an Internet and multimedia design company.
