I’m really chuffed with these sample excerpts of The Buddha’s Bone. They arrived in the post from Lulu a couple of days ago. Basically, they contain just the first chapter, synopsis as published on all of the online retailers and a few reviews from Goodreads.
Why did I do this, then? Well, it’s much easier than carrying around a copy of my book at all times, which isn’t practical. But on a few occasions, both business and social, there have been times when my writing has come up and I’ve found myself empty-handed. Not any more. These pamphlet-sized excerpts are easy to pack in my work bag, handbag, or just to grab on the go for any occasions that require a dose of promotion. Writers, what do you think? Handy, or not?
