Shelley Adina:
Write Killer Back-Cover Copy

10:30 – 12:00 noon

Your book's cover gets your reader's attention. Then they read the back-cover copy—where you can clinch that sale. Multipublished, award-winning author Shelley Adina will break down the back-cover blurb, from shoutline to hook.

Back-cover copy is an art form, and whether traditionally or indie published, authors need to know how to write it well. Our goal for this meeting is for attendees to leave with finished copy for their upcoming book.

Shelley Adina is president of Moonshell Books, Inc., her own indie press. She is the author of the 20-book (and counting) Magnificent Devices steampunk series, as well as several other series in the Amish fiction and Regency genres. She holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction, and is at work on a PhD in Creative Writing at Lancaster University in the UK.
