About This Workshop

Don’t lose sales with a less-than-ideal book description. In this workshop, designed for self-publishing romance writers, you’ll learn to distill your plot into a short, exciting blurb and write an engaging tagline, a compelling opening, and an intriguing ending. By breaking it down step by step, you really can write a book description that readers will love.   

Lesson 1: Identify your audience (subgenre, trope, keywords) 
Lesson 2: Blurb structure: one-part structure 
Lesson 3: Blurb structure: two-part and three-part structure 
Lesson 4: Opening line 
Lesson 5: Ending line 
Lesson 6: Tagline  

Each lesson will have homework, and feedback will be provided. By the end of the workshop you will have brainstormed several approaches and written and polished a complete blurb.
