The book description, short of writing a good book, is second only to a great cover when it comes to your marketing strategy. Your cover is the first thing that grabs the reader’s attention. The book description (aka the blurb) is what makes the click.
Writing a blurb is not easy, and it’s not a skill every author has. I’ve written all of my blurbs since my first published book, including my five Berkley books, without any major changes. Let me clean up your current blurb or write one from scratch off your synopsis.
I provide a solid, concise blurb designed to sell your book.
Payment must be made prior to blurb development. This is non-negotiable.
You will receive:
- a blurb of 100 words or less
- a blurb of 50 words or less
- a blurb of 20-30 words
- a strong tagline designed to intrigue
I do not read your manuscript to develop a blurb. I use your synopsis or a blurb you’ve already created to write the marketing copy. After reviewing your synopsis or original blurb, I will ask questions if I don’t have a clear picture as to book’s storyline or characters.
Once the blurb is ready, it will be provided for review. If there are any points overlooked that you believe need to be included, we’ll discuss. I always allow my clients to have the final say, but I will do my best to point out why some modifications are not in your best interest when it comes to presenting the book in its best possible light.
Sales are not guaranteed when using the blurb.
This is considered a work for hire, so once payment has been made, if you wish to modify the content for the purposes of promo or other uses, you are free to do so. However, any content written by me that has not been paid for will be subject to US and International copyright laws.
