When it came time to release my latest book, I thought I'd try something new to help readers decide to buy: I'm offering the first 6 chapters as a downloadable preview book.
I've seen a lot of chatter in the past few months about authors who do a great job in the sample offered by some retailers, but then the writing takes a turn for the worse. Like the author polished that first part in order to "trick" the reader into buying the book. And, if you're like me, you might buy a book months before you're able to read it--so you can't get a refund once you realize it's terrible.
So I'm offering the first 6 chapters for free to let readers know that I take the same approach to writing the beginning as I do to the whole book. If you don't like what I've crafted in those first 6 chapters, then thank you for trying and I hope you'll give me another try next time. The last thing I want is for someone to feel like I "tricked" them into buying a bad book.
