I reread some old blogs today and noticed an interesting change in my first impressions of posting sample chapters on the website to how I feel about it now.
When I started writing this blog I obviously thought it was not really a good idea. Now, I would have to say I think it is one of the best marketing tools an author can use.
It may just be my familiarity with writing blogs that has brought about my change of mind, but I suspect it is also part of broader changes with entertainment in general. The internet is coming into its own as a valid platform for publishing and marketing.
