Judging A Book By Its Cover Part 4 It’s All About The Blurb

I was reading a blog post (Ugh! Can’t remember who’s) But they were saying, “Give me more! Don’t be afraid to add more to your blurb or include a snippet from the book. If you want me to read it, entice and intrigue me.” Some books and movies have those famous one lines that as …
