Understanding the genre you want to write in is one of the most important elements of being an author. It helps you craft books closer to what your readers want, it helps you be more marketable and hopefully sell more books. But what do you need to know and where do you go looking for that market information? Today, the Alliance of Independent Authors AskALLi team welcomes partner member Nat Connors from Kindletrends to explain how to understand your book genre.
First impressions matter, both in person and for selling books. But when you've finished your 70,000-word fiction masterpiece, the prospect of condensing it into a 150-word book blurb is overwhelming enough without also needing a one-line tag to catch a reader's eye. ALLi Partner Member Adam Croft explains how spending a little time with your hook and new book blurb could earn you thousands.
