The back cover of your book

With a well-written back cover you can already start promoting your book. You can also approach publishers, sponsors and potential buyers, ask for feedback from future readers and start the presale! Plus, your back cover gives you the structure to write the rest of the book without getting stuck.

In the video below I give tips and share my experiences.

Oh, before I forget: the back cover is usually about 250-300 words. That is much less than you think! So write and DELETE very smart! 😉

Write your own book?

This is how you do it

Are you serious about writing your book?

Don’t reinvent the wheel, like I did. As the author and co-author of more than 30 books, writing coach for hundreds of people and organizer of 20 writing retreats, I have finally found the best system for writing a good book: the ‘Reverse Writing’ method. If you begin at the end and create a good structure before you start writing, you will be able to follow your energy, instead of the page numbers.
