Please put sample pages onto each book page for all the books installed yesterday and today.

I looked at six book pages, as a sampling of the above.  None had sample pages.

I resist buying a book sans a sample of the author's writing style.

There SB a procedure to look up, and a template to follow that includes a work through of all data needed to produce a quality book page.

I have gotten used to jumping over to Amazon to look at sample pages for pre-pubs since they never seem to have sample pages on Logos.com. It's too bad I can't do all my decision-making on one site, though.

I do the same on the River.  I feel it would be nice to, as you say, use one site.  Samples would provide a positive customer experience for me, and I'm sure other people as well.

Thanks for bringing this up. We are currently making a number of adjustments to our posting process and plan to include sample pages for all pre-pub/pre-order books.

And please include a list of articles in a collection or festschrift or the table of contents. It doesn't help to have a preview which just consists of the first five pages of the first essay. Thanks!

Very yes! The ToC of essay collections is incredibly important to make manifest somehow on the product page.

Yes yes yes! This has always bothered me. A few initial pages from the Preface doesn't help me decide on an essay collection if I don't even know who the essays are by or what they are about. The entire TOC of any essay collection should be shown in the preview.
