Post a Sample of Your Book, Get an Agent

Many authors are wary of posting their material online. You shouldn’t be.

One author had some luck.

This article, Author Found on Penguin’s Web Site Signs Book Deal – NYTimes.com, reports:

“Ace Books, an imprint of Penguin, has signed the debut novelist Kerry Schafer to a two-book deal, only weeks after Ms. Schafer posted writing samples on Bookcountry.com, a Web site Penguin introduced in April that invites writers of genre fiction to share their work.”

There you go. 🙂
