Back Cover Bio 101

  • April 8, 2015 12:42 PM EDT
    I am in the process of writing my back cover and am simply coming up blank when I think of what to write. I am curious on other's views on what you have written or would suggest it should contain. I am looking for 250-300 words and the book is Titled: Entrepreneurial Success Stories

    Cheers!

    A suggestion is to look at some other author's back covers and get a feel for what they write. I like Dean Koont'z and what he writes, Stephen King too writes some good cover stuff.

    This one is shorter than some of his:

    Dean Koontz, the author of many #1 New York Times bestsellers, lives in Southern Califorinia with his wife, Gerda, their golden retriever, Anna, and the enduring spirit of their golden, Trixie.

    That's great news! I'll help promote to social media when you get it published too. I know we aren't as big as the publisher you work with, but everything helps.
