Salem: Making Back Cover Copy Sing with Diana Pharaoh Francis

January 16, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Making Back Cover Copy Sing

Readers tend to judge books on four things: who wrote it (and if they don’t know you, you’re down to three), word of mouth (and if you’re breaking in, you’re down to two), Book cover, and the description on the back cover. Sometimes they will pop open the book and read a little, but most often they go off the above. This talk is about how to maximize your book’s potential for grabbing a new reader by making your back cover copy really hook them.


Diana Pharaoh Francis
