Harini Gopalswami Srinivasan (harinigs) Hi everyone! I'm planning to put up excerpts from my published books before starting a giveaway. But how much of a published work can you share online? Is there a word limit beyond which the publishers can object?

Michael (grebmar) | 4 comments I would put up about five or six pages, myself. That should be enough for people to find out if they like your voice.

If you're worried about what would be a problem for your publisher, to be honest, I think that's a question you should ask your publisher.

Harini Gopalswami Srinivasan (harinigs) Thanks, Michael. Just trying to take the lazy way out! They would probably ask me to look at the terms of the contract, which I have to dig out from under tons of paper.
