I posed a question a couple of weeks ago in the Author Biz Facebook group about book blurbs. The question was: On a scale of 1 to 10 how important is your eBookstore Blurb to the sales of your books?

The answers probably shouldn’t have surprised me, but they did. Most answers were either 9 or 10. Thriller author DV Berkom said she’d just surveyed her readers and put it at a 12, obviously meaning that burbs are hugely important to her success selling books.

So, I decided a show on creating these book blurbs would be a good idea and I knew just the man to educate us. Author, teacher and fellow podcaster Bryan Cohen, who wrote a book last summer on the topic called How to Write a Sizzling Synopsis: A Step-by-Step System for Enticing New Readers, Selling More Fiction and Making Your Books Sound Good

Bryan, as many of you already know is the co-host and driving force behind the Sell More Books Show podcast. He is also an excellent resource for authors of all types, and he provides training through his website at sellingforauthors.com

Bryan is also offering a free course for authors at his website, sellingforauthors.com, that you can check out here.

In this show, we discuss why book descriptions are so important to sales of your books and consider the four most important elements of any book description.
