Write Better #Book Descriptions

I just found what I think will be a good aid in writing book descriptions. I’m going to use this to go over all mine. I tend to write a story I love, but struggle to find something interesting to say about it. Oh, and I found this on http://selfpublishingadvice.org/blog/reaching-readers-indie-authors-amazon/. Apparently, using this in combination with Words That Sell helps to capture the prospective reader in that crucial initial 30 seconds that decides buying or not buying.

And be sure to pick up a copy of How to Publish on Amazon Kindle, Smashwords, & Nook the Easy Way!.

TELL PROSPECTIVE READERS THE FOLLOWING (ALWAYS)

Fiction or Creative Nonfiction:

  • the central conflict.
  • who the main characters are
  • what are their goals
  • why they’re not having a good time of it. (Good time = bad novel),
  • what’s at stake.
  • where it’s set
  • why they probably can’t solve the problem (raise a doubt)
