My take on it

This is a short book, aimed at solving a problem: how do I write a book synopsis / description to go on the back of a print book or for listing my novel on e-book stores?

I was wrestling with this problem and after listening to Bryan on a webinar, I worked my way through the book. Bryan addresses issues and challenges succinctly and gives homework to deepen understanding of the material. I wrote my initial synopsis, then followed the easy steps as laid out in the book. By the end my synopsis had improved massively. It flowed better, was tighter and should entice the reader to click the buy-button.

Highly recommended for anybody who is ever asked to summarize their story! Short and sweet 🙂
