Hello all, not quite a guppie, but I have a guppie level question. I've self published a few non-fiction books to reasonably moderate success -as self publishing goes-, and I was considering setting up an author website in the near future. In part, because many agents and publishers are curious to hear about social media and web presence. That being said I've seen several authors who post the first chapter of their books as a 'preview' on their author websites. Which, if I end up self publishing my fiction works would be helpful.
However, is there any industry standard, which would lessen the chances of nabbing an agent if the first chapter of a book I'm querying is online on my author webpage?
