Synopsis Review

SynopsisConsult

A great book cover is designed for that first glance by a perspective reader. Once a reader chooses your book – either by clicking or by picking it up – they will go on to the back copy blurb. If a synopsis isn’t well crafted, a lot of readers will put down the book or get back to browsing.

A well crafted blurb is a crucial second step toward purchase.

Critique includes the following:

-Overall assessment (does it raise questions? Does it say who the book is about, what the conflict is, what the stakes are?)
-Keyword consult for Amazon search engine optimization
-Detailed “red pen” edits focusing on phrases/flow/clear visuals
-Two revisions

Critique does not include:

-Rewriting the synopsis
-Grammar/line edits

Fair Warning

This is hard work, but worth it in the end!

Non-Fiction Book Interior Formatting

While there are many differences in formatting styles, there are also conventions that have been established within different genres and industries. Readers within those genres and industries have learned to expect these conventions. When you fail to meet those expectation, or format contrary to them, you can quickly create confusion, or cause a reader to lose focus.

A disengaged reader is unlikely to finish your book and search for your backlist.

The Non-Fiction Formatting Package includes the following:

Book Formats:

• Print PDF (Formatted for your printer of choice)
