Getting ready to attack this again…
Yesterday we discussed the difficulty in writing a blurb – a short description that gets potential readers to click BUY – for your book
(See: Why Your Book Isn’t Selling, HERE. Hint – it’s the blurb.)
It’s hard to do for our own work because you are usually too close to your book. What you want in a blurb is the highlights, but presented in a certain way. A friend is usually better at that than you, especially when you’re doing it for the first time, and if you are in a critique group, you can ask one of your partners to help develop the blurb, then test it out on the other partners.
If it works, run it by friend and fans on your Facebook page (that’s also a sneaky way to create some interest without appearing to do so).
