Back of Book Blurb

The back of the book blurb needs to be attention-getting; it is a vital part of your book's marketing. The blurb is a paragraph (or two) that invites the reader into your book. You will want to begin with a hook, as this first line draws the reader in and gets them wanting to know more. The following few lines in the blurb will explain more about the storyline, the character, and the conflict, without giving too much away.

Make your blurb simple and easy to understand, and not too long. StarLight suggests looking at blurbs in your book's genre and understanding how to write a compelling blurb.
