For our second round of "Are You Hooked" we are going to focus on THE BLURB.
Here's the deal: Pretend your book is already in print -- a beautifully crafted, hard bound book with a high quality dust jacket, prominently displayed at your favorite brick-and-mortar.
A curious reader opens the nearest copy in order to read the jacket flap...
What does it say?
Write your jacket flap and send it to me at authoressmail (at) gmail.com.
Hint: If you've already got a decent query letter (i.e., your query letter actually garners responses from agents), there's a good chance you've got a paragraph or two in there that serves as your "blurb." If you don't already have a decent query letter, perhaps this exercise will help you to whip up an exciting enough book hook to start raking in those requests for partials and fulls.
Questions? Post them here.
All submissions received by 9:00 am EDT on Thursday, May 8, will be included.
