Check here for a free e-book containing sample chapters from 5 new and upcoming Harper Teen books. Unfortunately, it’s only available in PDF format. My first attempt to convert the PDF for use on my Kindle came out as an awkward, unreadable mess, but maybe I’ll try again with a different method.
Samples included are from:
- Fragile Eternity, by Melissa Marr
- Once Dead, Twice Shy, by Kim Harrison
- Stargazer, by Claudia Gray
- The Awakening, by Kelley Armstrong
- Wings, by Aprilynne Pike
