Writing a blurb

Writing a blurb

A good blurb can be the selling point of your book. The cover can attract a potential reader to pick it up and look at it. But what happens next? Yep, they turn to the back cover and read the blurb.

Look at the blurb of some of the books you have bought. What made you want to read them?

A few pointers:

Introduce the main character

Create intrigue around the main character

Explain the setting and action

What will the problems be?

How will the problems be overcome?

Keep it short (2-3 paragraphs)

Do not give the ending away!
