    Before writing your back book blurb, choose of the bestselling books in your genre and make a note of stylistic similarities. Then ensure you incorporate them into your back book jacket blurb. 2. Put yourself in the reader’s shoes. This can be really hard for authors. We get so caught up in delivering an enthralling story or a big idea. Step 4. Read your book. Now you are all set and ready to move on to reading the book. Remember to take notes and answer the questions that you have set beforehand. Step 5. Stay focused on creating your book description. While reading the book, you should keep your goal in mind at all time. And your goal is to write a compelling hook.

    Finding the ideal reader for genre fiction is a piece of cake when you compare it to finding the ideal reader for mainstream fiction, a topic I’ve been nibbling around the edges for three years (as I finish the writing) with little success (many indies, especially those who blog, write SFF, romance, thrillers, dytopian, and mysteries). Special Offer: How to write your memoir in 30 days, a new book from Reader’s Digest» You don’t need to have had a hardscrabble youth in order to write a memoir. You don’t need eccentric.

    Give just enough to get the reader interested in reading more; don't give anything away. State the purpose of the book, especially if the work is non-fiction. For example, if your book is intended to educate the reader about famous African scientists in the 20 th century, you may want to state this in the preface. You could also describe what. It depends on your point of view. If you're writing omniscient and have been talking to the reader the entire time, that would fit. If you haven't been addressing the reader before now, that sudden break is probably going to feel weird and throw them out of the story. I'd suggest not doing it.

Part 5: Describe your background/origin of book. Once you’ve hooked the reader, appealed to their pain, and shown them the benefit they can have if they overcome it, now it’s time to explain who you are, why you wrote the book, and why the reader should trust what you have to say.

Grabbing, and keeping, a reader's attention is paramount for an author, especially in today's crowded book market. Bored readers won't become rabid fans.

In today's article, Boni Wagner-Stafford explains. If you are writing a book, I think the appropriate language really depends on what kind of book it is and what your readers expect.

For example, if a book is published in a “scientific” context, the language has to be very different from a book published in the “Dummies” series (“Chemistry for Dummies”). Your thesis is an argument, not just an observation or a restatement of the prompt or question. It should be an argument that takes a stand people might disagree with.
