Women On Writing titled It's Your Year to Build Your Platform and Sell Your Book! and edited by Margo L. Dill. Here's her introduction into the article: "Many authors, including myself, have trouble explaining what our books are about or writing back cover copy or a query letter because the manuscripts are so near and dear to our hearts! How can we leave any section or endearing character out? But as readers, we know what entices us to pick up a book and spend our hard-earned dollars; and so does author Karen S. Wiesner, who deserves the title "The Blurb Queen." We thank her for sharing with us an excerpt from her book, WRITING BLURBS THAT SIZZLE--AND SELL!, in this article, "How to Write Blurbs that Sell: Three Types of Blurbs." Click here to go to a tutorial, complete with step-by-step instructions and examples, on how to write: high-concept blurbs for a query letter or pitch; blurbs that go on your back cover or as an Amazon description; and series blurbs, such as for a romance or mystery series."
