Life in Writing
So you’ve finished your novel. Every chapter has been written and edited to perfection. But there’s still some writing left to do: the book blurb.
We’ve all read the blurb of any book we’ve ever bought. It’s an important factor in our decision of what we want to take our time to read and what we don’t. A good blurb can be the difference between a best seller and flop. So how do you write a blurb that will catch your audience’s attention? Here are four things to consider before you start working on the most important part of your book.
Blurbs can be hard to write, but if you keep these things in mind you can write one that will leave your readers wanting more.
