Hello InspyRomancers! I have a big question for you today. Sneak peeks—yes or no? More specifically speaking, as a reader, do you like to read excerpts or sample chapters from a book that hasn’t been released yet?
I’ve asked this question to my reader group before and was surprised to discover that some readers prefer not to get a sneak peek. The reason why? One reader explained that if she reads a sample chapter before a book is out and then later on reads the same chapter after the book is published, she might assume that she’s already read the book and stop reading it. Considering the large number of books that romance readers devour, this is a probable situation.
On the other hand, there are some readers who enjoy getting a couple of “spoilers” ahead of time. I myself am one of them. It’s like being able to sample food at the grocery store. I find that sneak peeks make me more excited about a story, especially if I’ve been waiting for it for a while. Also, when I see a sneak peek that resonates with me from a new-to-me author, I’m more inclined to pick up the book and give it a try.
On that note, I’d like to share 3 short excerpts from my upcoming rom-com, One Vow for September. I hope you’ll enjoy these sneak peeks, however, if you’d prefer not to read them, that’s fine, too!
Well, there you have it! Now that you’ve read these sneak peeks, do you feel like they whet your appetite for more of the story? If so, you can get One Vow for September, along with 11 other stories, for only 99¢ when you pre-order Save the Date HERE! This limited-time, one of a kind Christian wedding anthology is available on all retailers and will be releasing in one month on October 12th. You’ll recognize a couple of other current InspyRomance authors—Jaycee Weaver and Jan Thompson—in this set. Also, former InspyRomance author Marion Ueckermann contributed her story, as well as the cover image before she went to be with Jesus this past June.
