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.
We stack books with full intent to read them all, but then time escapes us while our To Be Read pile grows ever taller. Luckily, there are ways we can make time for reading.
Reading for pure enjoyment has been on a sad decline for a while now, with reports saying 24% of Americans haven’t read at all for pleasure this last year.
Life gets busy; books don’t get prioritized. Pew Research Center states the average American is still likely to read around 12 books a year.
But with over a million books being published each year, the undeniable fact is: we need to find more time to read.
Due to unlimited distractions, shorter attention spans and increased boredom, we aren't finishing the books we start to read. Our impulsive and fickle nature is also to blame.
