Words that Sell Books

June 15 - 30, Fee: $55

Instructor: Shirley Jump

Back cover copy. Synopses. Query letters. They are all used to sell your
books, to readers and to editors and agents. But they’re not the
easiest things to write, not if you want to create compelling, must-read
marketing materials. No one likes writing these things–but they can be
easier to do with this simple method that takes the plot’s ABCs and
turns them into a simple synopsis covering the essential points of the
story. A great novel synopsis is not just a book report; it’s also a
marketing tool. Learn how to use marketing hooks to create powerful
sales materials. Former Director of Communications for a marketing
agency Shirley Jump will help you use NY advertising techniques to make
your book more sellable!
