Taglines, Blurbs, Mini-Synopses

When someone asks what your book is about, how do you answer? Do you stumble & stammer and ramble on and on like I used to do until the person desperately searches for a quick exit?  

How do you attract an agent? Publisher? A reader?

Learn how to say/write a catchy teaser for your book, a one- or two-line tagline that'll nail the exciting parts of your book. Use it when someone asks about your book; use it as an opener in your query. If you self-publish, use it on Amazon. 

Join us to learn some techniques. We'll work to compose that fantastic tagline that'll intrigue and excite the reader into wanting to rush to buy right now! 

Your homework:

Bring to class a one or two paragraph summary of your book, and try to come up with the high points--plot points. Unlike writing a synopsis to include with a query, for this exercise, you do not have to include the ending. Just what you think your book is about.
