Course description: Make your book fly off the shelves!

Are you an author who dislikes or dreads trying to write back cover blurbs for your stories, or have you started one and want help making yours sizzle with intrigue and impact?

Would you like to utilize a series blurb but you’re not sure where to start in covering all the books in your series in one succinct, powerful paragraph?

Would you like to have a short, punchy version of your blurb that can be used in your marketing and author/series branding?

Are you a publisher with a stable full of books that need blurb overhauls?

Your back cover blurb can make or break sales given that it’s one of the first glimpses of the story. Many readers buy based on an intriguing back cover blurb that convinces them they absolutely have to read the story inside the pages…or they simply set the book down without ever opening it. Additionally, a winning series blurb can sell not just one book but all of them in that set!

Your host for this workshop is Karen Wiesner. Let the author of the definitive guide to writing blurbs, Writing Blurbs That Sizzle–and Sell!, and the genre-diverse, award-winning writer of 130 titles, including 19 series, provide an in-depth reference to all things blurbs that may help sell your books to publishers and readers alike. Karen S. Wiesner is also the author of the bestselling First Draft in 30 Days, Bring Your Fiction to Life: Crafting Three-Dimensional Stories with Depth and Complexity, and Writing the Fiction Series: The Guide for Novels and Novellas, all available now from Writer’s Digest Books. Additionally, Cohesive Story Building is available from Writers Exchange E-Publishing. Visit Karen’s website:
