Kate Benesch asked Lurlene McDaniel:

What are some tips you have for writing a great book blurb?

Lurlene McDaniel In truth my blurbs and back of the book copy is written by the great marketing team at Random House. That said, consider the blurbs that grabbed YOU and made you buy a book.

That said, keep blurbs brief, hint at plot of story, conflict, first names of main characters, and use words that are compelling to imagination.
