My 5 Star Review
A Short Little Book that Packs a Punch!
This book isn’t very long, but it’s succinct at explaining, with good examples, on how to write what many authors tend to struggle with, the blurb, for back cover of paperback and Amazon ebook descriptions.
Cohen simplifies the process for us using his own experience of being a copywriter. But blurb writing is not copywriting as he informs us. There’s a basic formula for extracting the best parts of a book for the synopsis, and it works no matter the genre and Cohen is sharing that with us.
Sometimes it’s difficult to look at our own book and figure out how to condense it into a mere 300-500 word description to hook our readers into wanting to read more. So if you’re an author struggling with the often dreaded synopsis writing, this book is for you.
