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. 🙂
