Like those free samples at Costco and Sam’s Club? Wish you could sample books before you buy? The Edge is chatting up the Yahoo group, Chapter-a-Week today, where you can nibble new books and taste the pages before you plunk down your hard-earned money.
CAW gives readers the opportunity to read free sample excerpts from a broad range of Christian fiction every week. It”s a great way to discover new authors you might not have found otherwise. CAW doesn’t fill your inbox with needless emails. Only one email per week to get your free chapter and discover great new titles.
Founded in February 2002 by novelists Jane Orcutt and Angela Hunt, Chapter-a-Week has had a steadily growing readership. In honor of the soon-to-be-named 1000th member, Chapter-a-Week is giving away autographed books donated by more than half a dozen Christian novelists. CAW will send a box of books to the 1000th member, and if that person was recommended to CAW by you, you’ll get two free books mailed to your snail mail address too! Pretty cool!
Here are some of the authors participating in this celebratory giveaway: Robin Lee Hatcher, Tricia Goyer, Judith Miller, Camy Tang, DiAnn Mills, Traci DePree, and yours truly. Chapter-a-Week is a Yahoo! Group, so simply sign on to be a subscriber of the list and you’ll start receiving your excerpts every Friday. Just go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ChapteraWeek/ and click “join this group.”
Happy free reading!
