Blurb Writing Services

 

 

Are you missing out on book sales? 

 

Every author has asked this question at least once. You may be thinking you aren’t receiving all the sales your book deserves. You’re not alone.

According to Forbes, between 600,000 and 1,000,000 new books are published every year. Your book has to compete with all the new books published yearly in your genre, as well as the ones that are currently on the shelves, digital or otherwise.

How do you combat the competition? We believe the answer is honing your book’s blurb, otherwise known as the book description or the back cover blurb. These days, readers need to be compelled to reach into their pockets. That’s where we come in. 

 

“Ryan’s blurb writing service was a great time, toil, and aggravation saver on a task that was really frustrating me. He added just the right zip to what I was trying to say.”  -Roy V. Gaston, author of How Can A Man Die Better

 

There are a lot more people visiting your book’s sales page than you might think.

You know exactly how many people have purchased your book, but not how many have visited its page. For every person who has purchased your book, there’s a crowd who visit your page and move on without buying. Those are lost sales, and it’s bleeding your bottom line.

Every author experiences some of this. The question is, what is your conversion rate? How many potential customers are passing on your book?

“I cannot thank Ryan enough for his blurb services. He took the stress out of getting those precious, few words onto the back of my book to ensure the description was clear and engaging. I look forward to working with Ryan again.” –Natasha James, author of Entangled Prophecy

 

“Ryan did a wonderful job of identifying the key conflicts my book, creating descriptors that captured both the immediate and larger questions confronting my protagonist, worded in a way to pique the interest of readers—and without giving away the plot. I recommend giving Ryan a chance to write blurbs for you—a job that almost every writer hates!” -Marian L Thorpe, author of Empire’s Daughter

 

“He really understood the feel I wanted to get across to a new reader and I feel the blurb he wrote will really help the book sell.” -E.V. Lee, author of Sinner

 

“Ryan took my synopsis and created a blurb that captured the essence of my story, drawing readers into my fantasy world. His turn-around was quick and he was very professional to work with.” -Heather Kindt, author of The Green Door

 

“It was a pleasure to work with Ryan. He was professional, emailed promptly, and even returned my blurb earlier than expected.

“Ryan captured the story’s essence and delivered excellent product. I intend to continue using his services.” -Vince Milam, author of The Texas Job

 

“We contacted Ryan to assist us with writing the blurb for our speculative fantasy novel, Augee: Guardian of Hohala. We’d had particular trouble configuring the blurb text to best showcase the novel’s plot in a way that would appeal strongly to the target YA audience because we felt, as the writers, we were too close to the story to be clear-eyed and objective. After supplying Ryan with the information he requested, he promptly produced a draft blurb text that was purposefully crafted and which read entirely different to our efforts; most importantly, it hit the notes we needed. We were in need of a writer who knows what they are doing to cast a “fresh” eye on the novel’s plot and to steer us in the right direction with the blurb. Ryan absolutely helped us in that regard, and we would avail of his services again.” -Cormac Lambe, co-author of The Augee Series

 

“Within seconds, you’ll need to capture a prospective customer’s attention. How is this done for books? With a blurb. Not just any blurb, though. You’ll need a blurb that is eye-catching, sizzling, and tantalizing. A blurb that teases with a taste of the book, while leaving the customer begging for me. This is where Ryan at A Writer’s Path comes in. His unique talent is to distill a novel into its essence, producing an elixir of magnetism. With his help, the magic of the blurb’s words will pull and capture the customer. If you want to sell more books, Ryan is your guy. I highly recommend his service.” -RD Palmer, author of The One Singularity

 

“I was struggling to write a punchy and catchy blurb for my new novel and turned to Ryan Lanz for his help.  Ryan produced two blurbs from the different character perspectives and both were excellent.  He really understood the feel I wanted to get across to a new reader and I feel the blurb he wrote will really help the book sell. I would recommend Ryan’s services highly and will be definitely using him again for my next novel.” –E.V. Lee, author of Sinner

 

“I was really impressed with the service provided by his blurb writing service and will use it again. Ryan, thank you for helping me with my project and I will use your service in the future. ” Charles Quince, author of Presidential Prestige

“Their pithy blurbs will convince readers to buy your book.” –Marylee MacDonald, author of Surrender

 

“I recently employed the help of Ryan to write the marketing blurb of my latest novel. Writing a great sales blurb can be the most arduous process, even after you’ve just typed 100K words on the subject. Ryan quickly provided a diverse selection of blurbs to choose from, each tailored to a different marketing angle for the book. I couldn’t be more satisfied with or grateful for his work.” -Joseph Stone, author of Wolf Omega

“Because my book is a genre mash-up, I had a hard time finding comparable titles to compare blurbs to the blurb I’d written for my book. I chose to work with Ryan based on a recommendation from a writer’s group. Using my synopsis, Ryan crafted three blurb versions for me. He delivered ahead of schedule and even included bonus suggestions I hadn’t expected. I’m very happy with his work and glad I chose to work with him.” -Jami Fairleigh, author of Oil and Dust
