INDIE AUTHORS: EVER WANTED AN EXPERT TO TELL YOU HOW TO FIX YOUR BLURB?

Hi, I'm Jessie — professional blurb writer and book blurb coach — and if you're onto version fifteen (or fifty!) of your blurb, I know how you're feeling.


For most indie authors, writing the book blurb is one of the most painful parts of the self-publishing process.


But it's also one of the most important things you'll ever write.


Your book blurb is usually the first piece of your writing that your reader engages with (yep, even before that opening sentence you agonised over!), it's your secret salesperson, a crucial piece of your book marketing puzzle and it can make or break sales.


Phew. No pressure, right?!


Of course, you can always hand the job over to a professional like me,  but I understand that after editing and cover design costs, your indie author budget might not stretch that far.


But what if there was a way to get a professional's eyes on your blurb, hear their suggestions and rewrite your blurb with expert guidance?


You might have guessed by now...there is!


Welcome to the Book Blurb Magic 1:1 Blurb Audit service, an intensive, collaborative mentorship designed especially for time-poor, budget-conscious indie authors like you!


While paying for a custom blurb can cost you upwards of $250, the 1:1 Blurb Audit is just $195, making it the perfect mid-ground for indies who need a bestseller blurb without breaking the bank.


Here's How It Works...

Step 1:


  • Send me your 150-250 word blurb draft as a Word doc (you'll be given a link to do this after purchase). Even if you're not in love with it, please make an effort to write approx. three short paragraphs and have a go at writing a hook so we have something substantial to work with (if you're not familiar with blurb structure you can download my free cheatsheet here).


Step 2:


  • Hop on a 60 minute Zoom call with me, where we'll do some serious rewriting so you can walk away with a polished, streamlined and professional blurb in under an hour!

Bonus Support:


Depending on what we started with, you may be left with a little bit of "homework" to do after the call. But if any tweaks are still needed after our 60 minutes is up, you still have 2 weeks of access to me inside our shared Google Doc to help you finish it off (and get my eyes on the final version before we wrap up!).


Get ready for your blurb reveal!



What You Get:

  • 60 minute Zoom call. On this call, I walk you through the problem areas of your blurb and ask questions/provide guidance to help us brainstorm/rewrite the parts that need work. While this is a highly collaborative session in which you're encouraged to contribute throughout, you'll also have the benefit of my experience to shape a snappy hook, pare your blurb down to only the most tantalising of information and construct a CTA that drives sales. You'll leave this call with a blurb that is guaranteed to be at least 99% done (though often we hit perfection in under 60 minutes!), leaving you with very minimal (if any) tweaks still to make.


  • 2 weeks of unlimited revisions. If there's still tweaks to be made after our 60 minute call, you have a fortnight to hash out the final details with me on the shared Google Doc and get my feedback on the final version.


I promise to hold your hand every step of the way, so that you can walk away with an amazing blurb AND tailored blurb advice to your niche and author voice that you can apply to future blurbs!


I was dreading the blurb-writing process and knew that I didn't have the skills to write a really compelling blurb. Hiring Jessie was the absolute best decision I could have made! I've worked with her for 2 blurbs and have already signed up to work with her on my 3rd book blurb. Jessie made the process so easy. She was able to take what I had come up with and transform it into a really strong blurb in just an hour. It was such a relief to be able to upload my blurb to my Amazon preorder right when we got off the call. It's only been a few months since the release of my first two books, but so far I've sold over 30,000 copies. I know so much of that has to do with a blurb that draws people in and is easy to read! I haven't outsourced much during my self-publishing journey, but I would outsource my blurbs to Jessie one thousand times over!

FAQs

I'm in a different timezone to you. What is your availability?

I'm in Sydney, Australia, but I work with clients all over the world! If you can't find a time on my calendar that works for your timezone I'm happy to be flexible where possible. Just shoot me an email after you purchase!


How "finished" does my blurb have to be?

You need to have written a minimum of 150 words (and no more than 250) and made an effort to structure it with a hook, key information and clear stakes (for fiction) and a hook, key information/main argument and benefits/features (for non-fiction). It doesn't have to be super polished, but I need to have something to work with! The more you have, the more you'll get out of this audit.


What if the blurb I send you is unsalvageable?

If — upon reviewing your blurb — I determine that it would be better to start from scratch, I'll tell you! Then you can either ask for more time to rewrite it and come back to me, or simply upgrade to my custom blurb service and let me handle it for you.


Will you be rewriting parts of my blurb for me?

I will make significant rewrite suggestions throughout the process, but it's important to understand that the 1:1 Blurb Audit is a chance for you to get your hands dirty and learn to finesse a professional blurb. Clients who get the most out of this service are the ones who offer their own ideas and phrases as we write!

What genres do you accept?

Literally everything — I've never met a blurb I couldn't help! If you're particularly worried about yours, DM me on Instagram or send me an email and let's chat!


I have multiple versions of the blurb — which one should I send you?

I'm happy to accept up to TWO versions of your blurb, so that we can amalgamate the best bits into one (please note we won't be rewriting both!). If you are sending more than one blurb version, please include them  in the one Word doc. You can also send me multiple versions of the same paragraph/ending/hook — just ensure they're clearly labelled in the doc (the comments feature is good for this).


Urgh, this sounds like too much work — can you just write my blurb for me?

Of course! Head on over to my Custom Blurb Service to book your spot.



If you're sick of second-guessing yourself...agonising over single sentences...never knowing if your blurb is "finished" or "good enough"...scared you're doing it wrong...or just plain ready to tick this off your book launch to-do list...

Then the 1:1 Blurb Audit is for you.


Starting now, you've got me on your team — and I'm completely, 100% obsessed with crafting the perfect blurb for your story.


Let's find your ideal readers together and give them a back cover so juicy they can't leave it on the shelf.

I want to start the 1:1 Blurb Audit — let's do this!
