Writing a good book is only half the battle. Now you must get the readers´ attention with every tool at your disposal from your book blurb to your website.

Book Blurb star
Articles in this subsection pertain to writing the book blurb for your fiction.

Book Blurbs That Are Too Long star
Try to keep your book blurb no longer than 200 to 300 words. Readers tend to scan book blurbs restlessly, sometimes many at once, looking for escapism and entertainment in a world bursting with choices. They will get bored and irritated if they have to read a too-long book blurb.

Fiction Synopsis star
The articles in this subsection pertain to writing the synopsis of your fiction project.

How to Write an Author Bio star
Regrettable author bios come in two types. First, the one that includes too many superficial details that quickly become outdated. Second, the off-putting bio that comes across badly to the readers. Keep your author bio brief and timeless.

Worst Three Fiction Blurb Mistakes star
Blurb writing is similar to writing poetry in that you must be very succinct and make each word count. As with everything, you get better with practice. Here are three common mistakes to avoid as you attempt to improve your blurbs.

Writing the Blurb and the Synopsis star
Fiction writers who wish to publish must learn to write a blurb and a synopsis. Both can be challenging to create, but it helps to understand their vastly different requirements and purposes. Composing blurb and synopsis can give you a deeper understanding of your fiction project.
