If it's good enough for St. Martin's Press, it's good enough for me. I'm going to try a Sample My Books First Feature. Here's how it goes. You get to test my book before you buy on this very blog. Once a week or more, I will include a chapter, section, or a tip from The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success. You may subscribe to this blog in the left column of this letter so that you don't miss a single one of the sneak peeks. (You'll also find a subscription box for my newsletter there so don't confuse the two!)
First up?! A section on what you may be missing when you pop your edited query letter or manscript into the mail.
