Do you read teaser excerpts from favorite authors before their book is released? I sometimes will check out Ilona Andrews blog, they have some fun teasers sometimes. But mainly I don’t want to read them because while it may create excitement and they can be super fun…I really just want to read the whole book already. Though it is fun to visit with some of my favorite characters every once in a while.
How do you feel about teasers? Do you enjoy them and eat them like candy? Or do you hold off and wait for the published book? IF you don’t read them because you don’t follow author blogs, how do you feel about teasers philosophically? Personally I think they are a good idea because a new reader can get a feel for the writing and characters before making an investment. They are also nice to chum the water of your fan base before your new book is released.
