Ep 160 What is the Hook

On this Episode of Buzzing about Romance we are going to talk all about Good and Bad of Blurbs.  Do you like spoilers- when teasers give away the best parts of the book, Content and Trigger Warnings – the good, the bad, and the needed  

Romance Term of the Week-  Blurb- short description of a book, movie, or other product written for promotional purposes and appearing on the cover of a book or in an advertisement. 

This is different from when an author says they are “blurbing a book” – Blurbs are short book reviews written by authors or experts in the book’s field. They are used by authors & publishers on their marketing material. It is not a “book description.” A book description is written by a publisher, book marketer, or author, and it describes the contents of the book.

  • Blurbs- What do you need in a blurb
