Marketing Materials - Short Form

5 September 2011, Marketing Materials - Short Form

I also produce a short form for my novels.  This form is not complete.  That is, it doesn't include all the information you need to give a publisher or an agent.  It does include the kind of information you might need for a reviewer, a newspaper, a book show, a website, and etc.  You can additionally use this information for teasers and to help write other marketing material.

The short form gives you quick and terse words to describe yourself and your works.

Short form information: 

1.  No more than 3 sentences about the content of your manuscript.

2.  One sentence about successful works similar to yours.

3.  No more than 2 sentences about yourself. (use 3rd person)

4.  No more than 2 sentences that include “other,” i.e. any reasons, relationships, or other factors that might make your work more attractive.

Tomorrow, we'll start filling out the short form for Aksinya with commentary, of course.
