Things You Should Know About Book Blurbs
Are you willing to put a negative book blurb at the back of your book? There are a lot of people that really do not trust these book blurbs. There are so many people out there that will be wondering why there are some publishers and authors that would bother and write a book blurb. There are even some people who are worst than that and thinks that every time a blurb on the book is positive, the author is a good friend of the blurber. It does not matter if the two are friends or what that is because people would really love helping each other all the time. If you have a friend who is an author of a book, you will definitely give him or her a positive book blurb. But you will never give your friend a book blurb if you think that the book is not good. You would provide your friend with a constructive criticism instead.
But you need to be aware that friendship is not always the reason why there are positive book blurbs. The usual myth and rumors when it comes to book blurbs back then is that they are made because friends want to help each other. But when you think of it in general, this is really not true. Do they really think it is how it works? Those things would really not work in the business and private world, maybe in those made up worlds from children. Yes it is true that people would usually connect with their friends and make blurbs but the think about friendship which is the reason why the blurbs are positive is not true.
You should know that authors and publishers would exert a lot of effort, research and time into the book blurbs. In order for the readers to trust the book, the book blurbs are made for that reason. That is why there are some authors and publishers that would consider getting some book blurbs from five or even six people in order for them to know if the book that they are writing is good or not.
One way for you to create a great reputation for the press is for you to collect book blurbs. There are so many small independent publishers today that would go an extra mile for the readers of their books because the world that we live in today is full of entrepreneurism, distrust, and anxiety, that is why they would look for endorsements that can be trusted in order to have improvements on their books and to increase the trust that their readers have for them. That is the reason why collecting positive book blurbs can be really helpful for all those small independent authors and publishers. The book will gain a lot of trust from the readers if the readers will see a great number of positive book blurbs about that certain book.
