How to Write a Good Book Description

Where Does My Cart Go?

I write my book description after I write the story. Why? Because I’m a discovery writer, so I don’t necessarily know what the best part of a story will be before I write it. That is revealed by my creative process.

I do have a basic goal in mind when I’m writing my series – “This book will focus on these events.” It’s how I can come up with a title for the next book and even sometimes a cover before the story is written. I know something will definitely occur in the next segment. But, sometimes, in the process of writing, a mundane event will become something special and so …

The book description is definitely a part of post-production.

  1. Do you know anyone who writes the description before the book?


  2. I’m with you there, I never know what’s going to happen when I start to type. It would make my life so much easier if whoever was dictating this stuff would do the description as well as the story.


  3. I know a few people who claim they’ve got their book all plotted out before they write it. I’m assuming that includes at least a draft of the book description. I often don’t have the book description written until I need to write it to put it on Amazon, so I’m skeptic of people who say they can write it before they’ve written the book.
