Whether you're going to submit to publishers or agents or go it alone and self publish you need a bio and a blurb. For submitting the blurb can be used in your query letter. Most publishers ask for a bio. If you're going to self publish you need the blurb to go on your book's book page. And you'll need the bio for your Amazon author page and guest posts.

There is pre-work to do for this meeting.

Prepare a long bio - 100 -150 words

Prepare a short bio - 50 words or less

Prepare a blurb of any of your books of 100 - 200 words. Think back cover copy. Check out some books in the same genre as yours and see what they have on the back cover to hook a potential reader.

We'll discuss them and help each other make them the best they can be.
