Writers' Lunch with David Colin Carr
Begin Your Book at the End: Writing the Back Cover Copy

Do you stumble when friends ask you what you’re writing? The Back Cover Copy specifies your intention, makes a promise to your readers, and keeps your writing from veering off course. It is also the foundation for marketing: tagline, description, elevator pitch, Amazon page, query letter. It’s your reference point when you lose heart for your project or forget what you want to achieve. The Back Cover Copy and a detailed outline are the most important tools for efficient completion of your book. Come learn what is included in the Back Cover Copy.

After you learn the basics, David is available for personal consultations on your Back Cover Copy.
