One of my reader pet peeves: when a publisher's site doesn't include excerpts. While I'm not always good about reading them, I'd like them to be there. And no, an excerpt on the author's site doesn't count.

 

The publisher I'm griping about: Carina Press. Which has a sale ending tomorrow, by the way. Coupon code SPOOKY14 gets you 31% off on the site. At the very least, I'm planning on buying Code Runner, because I'm enjoying Binary Witness so much.

 

Seriously, why do some of these books have excerpts and others don't?
