Book blurb — an attention-grabbing summary that’s between one hundred and three hundred word
Writing a blurb ahead of time can provide a clear focal point — and prevent the story from meandering or spiraling out of control.
My blurb-writing process has three steps: a pitch list, test drive, and redesign.
Ask yourself interesting questions:
Inject the summary with a touch of narrative voice that matches the protagonist’s personality or the overall tone of the story. It should included:
Character: Who is the main character? What do they want? What do they stand to lose if they don’t achieve that goal? What is compelling about their personality and narrative voice?
Plot: What is interesting about the story world or setting? What’s the inciting incident? What obstacles stand in the way of the protagonist’s goals?
Originality: What new twist or feature does the story add to this genre? What is the “unique selling point” of this book?
Blurb: You just need to pinpoint one or two specific details about the protagonist and conflict.
Query: They’re aimed directly at someone in the publishing industry.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
