I might suggest that "a preview of the latest best-seller" is a
contradiction. That is, if it's a best-seller, it's not a preview. If
it's a preview, it hasn't been sold yet.

I'll echo what others have said: I prefer not having fiction posted to
the list. On the other hand, I think it's A-OK to include a complete URL
in your signature where the gentle, willing reader might be directed for
a sample of your work.
