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.
