Today I was looking at a few books for my Kindle when I noticed that almost all of them were lacking. Lacking what, you ask? They were lacking a complete description. Most of them had one line or two that didn’t tell enough about the book to make it worth buying. None of them had an author biography that is easy to create on the sales page itself or through Author Central on Amazon.com.
Your book is going to have hundreds if not thousands of authors competing for every dollar spent on books. Make your book stand out by writing a complete description of at least two paragraphs. Don’t know what to include? Here are some ideas:
- The title of the book
- The type of book (fiction/non-ficiton)
- Category (for example… health or business)
- The intended audience
- Description of the content
- A little bit about you… the author
The more you tell people about your book the more likely they are to want to buy it. Make sure you open an account on Author Central and write a nice biography for yourself!
