A friend brought to my attention a proposal for a new discussion group that I think would be of great benefit to authors, publishers, and readers alike. It's a newsgroup called rec.arts.books.excerpts where authors and publishers can post links to new book excerpts on their websites and solicit feedback - obviously a great way to get exposure for a new title and create buzz for a book at no cost.

This newsgroup still has to pass a vote to be created. Many newsgroup proposals fail for lack of YES votes. If you're interested in this potential publicity tool, you can find voting instructions
Voting ends Sept. 3, 2003, so if you know of anyone else who would be interested in voting, please forward this to them.
