First complete your novel, rewrite it, revise it, polish it. Then post teasers of it on your blog when it has been bought by a publisher. Why this way? Because by then it has enough power to transmit to those who read your blog. Posts from self-published novels do turn people off. Posts from WIP are like diet soft drinks.

If your novel is under contract with a publisher, ask your publisher how much from your forthcoming novel can be posted. Usually you can post parts of it possibly as long as a short-story form. Be sure that you don't give your novel away. 


  1. Hi! I followed you back to your blog! Thanks for commenting on my review of your book! I am really enjoyed your book :)

    1. Thanks, Libby. An insightful review is always enjoyable to read, more so than just nice words.

    2. Appreciate it, Khanh. By the way, I am STILL getting comments and a lot of hits on the review this morning!

    3. It means that you have faithful fans who trust your words. And for bloggers and fans, writers and fans, it's wonderful.
