You finished writing your book, now you need help getting people to read it.
That’s where BACK-COVER copy comes in. And it’s a perfect example of “last, but not least.” After the front cover catches a reader’s eye, the back-cover copy needs to entice a reader to open the book!
For many authors, writing this copy is tougher than writing the entire book. That’s because back-cover copy is a type of advertorial writing that requires a special skill set.
That’s where I come in. In addition to blogging, I’m a professional marketing writer. I have written back-cover copy for YA authors Bryan Davis, Robert Elmer, Bill Myers, and Nancy Rue and have written for nonfiction authors, as well.
I offer three packages to fit your writer’s budget…
Best for bang for your Book
- Draft of back ad copy based on the book synopsis/proposal and sample chapters author supplies

Copy editing your draft
