“Jacket copy,” also known as “flap copy” or a “book blurb,” is a sales copy that lets the reader know what your book is about and why they should care.

In this week’s episode of So You Want to Write a Book, we’re looking at how to draft jacket copy, another important step in building the foundation for your book. Watch Suzette dissect examples of effective jacket copy and learn how and when to draft your own.

This mini-show is for aspiring authors and readers, and for everyone who cares about being a good literary citizen.

My goal is to break down the complex process of becoming an author so that you can finally write the book that’s been nagging or tugging at your heart. Even if you never plan to write a book, I’ll share tips that will help you become a more informed reader or a more effective writer in your work life.

So take out your pen and notebook (okay, your phone or laptop!) and let’s get started!
