Just stumbled across this fun website, Excerpt Monday, an ongoing hub of links to new romance novel excerpts that are refreshed each month. For September, I counted thirty-six romance authors participating, among them Emily Ryan-Davis, Ella Drake, Stephanie Draven, Julia Knight, and Jeanne St. James. Here’s how site creators Bria Quinlan and Alexia Reed, explain it.
Once a month, a bunch of authors get together and post excerpts from published books, contracted work or works in progress, and link to each other. You don’t have to be published to participate–just an writer with an excerpt you’d like to share.
The site is pretty bare bones, but the links to the individual excerpts on authors’ websites are terrific. I especially love the sneak peeks at works-in-progress or books that haven’t yet hit the stores.
