Book Update: Writing the Blurb

The Spirit in the Crypt is written, edited and ready to go.

Well, at least, the manuscript is.

After this, of course, there are lots of little things to consider when self-publishing your book. For example: the book cover, the writer bios, the author photo, the font sizes, and so on, and so on.

But one of the key parts of the book is the blurb.

Apart from the front cover, it’s often the first thing people look at before buying or reading a book. And this makes it one of the most important things to consider.

I’ve written three different blurbs, and have re-written each several times. Finally, I think I am close to having one that I am happy with. But I am meticulous, so there could still be changes yet.

The main problem is making it sound exciting without trying to give too much away. After a while though, you change it and re-read it so many times that your brain starts to ache and you just have to put the thing down for a while.

I am sure though that I will have something to share with you soon!

Apart from this, I hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday nights (I’m currently enjoying mine watching Chelsea against Sheffield Wednesday!).
