Book Blurbs – Rumors And Myths That You Should Know About
Are you willing to put a negative book blurb at the back of your book? You should know that many people most of the time would say that they have no trust on 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. Even worse than that, there are some people that would believe that the blurber and the author of the book are friends once they read that the blurb of a certain book is positive. It really does not matter if the author and the blurber are friends because people will really help each other most of the time. You would even make a positive book blurb if you have a friend who is an author of a book right? But if the book is not that good, you would never bother writing a book blurb. And instead, you will give him or her a constructive criticism.
But you should take note that not all book blurbs are made because of friendships. The most common rumors or myth back then is that a book blurb simply shows how friends are helping each other. But this is really not the case on all the blurbs. Do they really think it is how it works? Those things might work in those made up worlds by children but not on the real private and business world. There will always be some people that would really connect with their friends and do book blurbs but those blurbs are not entirely all because of friendships.
You should know that authors and publishers would exert a lot of effort, research and time into the book blurbs. These book blurbs are intended for the readers for them to trust the books. And in order to know if the book is good or not, some publishers and authors would consider asking five or more people to make a blurb for their book.
One way for you to create a great reputation for the press is for you to collect book blurbs. The world that we are in right now is full of entrepeneurism, distrust, and anxiety, that is why there are so many small independent publishers and authors that are doing their best for their target readers, they would look for endorsements that can be trusted in order for their books to have improvement and for the readers to have increasing trust in them. That is the reason why collecting positive book blurbs can be really helpful for all those small independent authors and publishers. A number of positive book blurbs on a certain book can go a long way when it comes to the trust of the readers.
