teasers

I'm thinking of future website content. A lot of authors have excerpts from their books.

What's your experience been with this, either as an author or as a reader?

As a reader, do you prefer to see the opening segment of a book, or a segment somewhere from within?

Does it matter, so long as the extract intrigues you?

Do you hate previews of books? Love them?

I recall being extremely entertained by the Baen website postings from Lois McMaster Bujold's A Civil Campaign before the book was published. The teasers only fed my desire to have the rest of the book.
