How to Write a Killer Book Blurb

Saturday, May 18, 10 – 11:30 am
Book Passage Corte Madera
$5 for CWC Members, $10 for Non-Members

Having a killer book blurb for the back cover of your book and online sales page is critical! Only your cover and title are more important in attracting readers. In this hands-on workshop, John will walk us through the art of creating a teaser that grabs readers’ attention and makes them want to know more.

Submit your blurb in advance (100 words or less, one per participant) if you’d like a live critique! Send it to by May 10 or share with us during the workshop. We will collaborate to make your hook stronger and sharper.
