Pan Macmillan Book Extracts

Description

This plugin creates a shortcode for displaying extracts directly from the Pan Macmillan extracts API (extracts.panmacmillan.com). You can use this to show the selected extract (usually the first chapter) of a book you are blogging about within your post. This works with any book published by Pan Macmillan UK or by one of the subsidiary imprints (Bluebird, Tor, Mantle, Picador).

Installation

Install the plugin by uploading the .zip file or using the WordPress Plugin Manager.
