This guide shows you step-by-step how to create six effective short forms for selling your manuscript to publishers and your indie-published book to readers: * The SYNOPSIS synopsis shows the novel's plot structure.

Use it during pitching appointments when you have only few minutes to talk about your book, and as a hook in query letters. * The BLURB is a product description for the book's backcover and Amazon page, designed to entice readers. * The ENDORSEMENT BLURB recommends another writer's book. * The TAGLINE is a short slogan to hook readers.

This book is not for dummies, but it is a guide for the modern indie author. Big Publishing spends big bucks on professional copywriters who make terrible books sound good. Meanwhile, indie authors can't get traction for their remarkable books, and inferior pulp with more spit and polish takes the spotlight. Most authors suck at writing sales and marketing copy for their own books. Not because they're terrible writers, but because writing copy is completely different from writing a book. The good news is these new skills can be learned. This book teaches the modern indie author how to write awesome sales copy. It's full of real techniques and easy to follow processes, not just theory and random examples that leave you struggling to find the connection. Best of all, it's just the right size to allow you to put these ideas to work immediately--and start selling more books!

See Me - A Complete Summary!See Me, written by Nicholas Sparks, is about two main characters-Colin Hancock and Maria Sanchez-and their romance that seems to blossom overnight in a typical 'love at first sight' clich�. Even though this may seem too predictable, this is exactly what Sparks' fans love about his books. This book, as well as his previous work, is distinctive for Sparks' own special formula, where he successfully creates two, seemingly unconnected characters and then brings them together by pure coincidence, and those characters will then fall in love. A new breath into the story plot is the involvement of an unknown stalker. This is also a twist in the story, filled with tension and thriller which, although unexpected from Sparks, is still a welcomed change in the author's style. Overall, See Me is a novel that most readers will enjoy reading, due to the fact that it has likeable and simple characters and a sweet, tender love story. But besides sweetness that undoubtedly lies beneath the surface of this book, another great element that makes this book even better and even more enjoyable to read is his new element of thriller and suspense, something readers will most definitely like.
