worth a listen

Overall this is a good book loaded with usable content & worth the listen. There are several issues with the sound quality though so if you're easily distracted with skips in the audio you might want to pass.

Highly Recommended

If you're a writer, or want to be one - there's a lot to the job that goes above and beyond writing the story - this book covers the art of the Blurb - the Tag line and back cover information that means the difference between someone buying your book or walking on. 5 Steps to Better Blurbs gives you the tools to get the job done and what to look for in a blurb. Great things come in Small, easy to follow steps.

Ready to write my own blurb for my first book

I am writing my first book and I KNOW that the title and the book blurb are normally the First two ways one is introduced to a book. So, I didn't give it a second thought. If I wanted this aspect of my book to be the VERY best...someone else should write it...you know, this being my first time and all. But after listening to Julie's book about blurbs (the ONLY audio book on here on the subject. Sidenote: why aren't there MORE audiobooks on...everything? Sheesh), I am ready to write my OWN blurb first draft (s). I will have it reviewed multiple times, but I now know what it entails and variations for different social media outlets. I will say, it seems there are a plethora of professionals that have experience with Fiction and thus almost every example, advice, etc, is geared toward that. My book is non fiction and thus most examples do not apply to me. :(

Great Book on Blurbs!

I really enjoyed this book, and especially the examples given to show how the author transformed an idea or a first copy blurb, into a final product. Recommended.
