The “Try Before You Buy” Promotion Hits DailyLit

DailyLit has launched a new program called "Book Samplers " in which subscribers via email or RSS feed will be sent short excerpts of books.  The categories include romance such as the Tastes of Harlequin . One of the "samples" is the first chapter  of Jennifer Crusie's Anyone But You.  The reader is then provided links for purchase.  This is a neat idea, but I do wish the samples were longer. Generally by chapter three, I can tell if I am going to be interested in reading the entire story.  

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Thanks for mentioning our new Samplers to your readers and for giving us feedback, Jane. We really value reader comments and will definitely use them to help us make the Samplers a great way to find new books. In the meantime, enjoy!
