Something magical this way comes...
A Blusterous Blurb, an Elegant Elevator Pitch, and a Tantalizing Tagline slide into an Algorithm...
Putting together these devilish pieces is no joke, in fact, it’s downright grueling. I own that I am nowhere near having a knack for it, but what I have done is uncover the saving grace of these necessary evils!
Developing the content of these three marketing tools, while working on a new manuscript, prompts structural improvement of the novel, streamlines conflict and its climactic resolution, and better defines the emotion you want to incite in the reader.
A blurb’s word count should be between 100-200. An effective Tagline is 1-10 words, while an Elevator Pitch can include 50-75.
The most difficult one to write, according to me, is the Tagline—condensing is a struggle for me. A trick I use though, is googling movie taglines. I think of a film that resembles my storyline and go from there. Tightening up a synopsis is also a good approach to writing them, in sequence, from longest to shortest.
Considering my new release, Love & Homegrown Magic, comes out on October 31, 2020, I’m curious... what do you make of these?
