Book Blurbs – Rumors And Myths That You Should Know About
Would you try to put a blurb on the back of your book that is not positive? There are a lot of people that really do not trust these book blurbs. The book buyers, reviewers, readers are wondering why authors and publishers would bother putting a book blurb. Even worse than that, there are some people that would believe that the blurber and the author of the book are friends once they read that the blurb of a certain book is positive. It really does not matter if the author and the blurber are friends because people will really help each other most of the time. You would even make a positive book blurb if you have a friend who is an author of a book right? But you will never bother writing a book blurb if the book is not that good. Instead, a constructive criticism is what you will be giving your friend.
But you should take note that not all book blurbs are made because of friendships. Book blurbs are made for friends to help friends, that was the common myth or rumor way back then about book blurbs. But when you think of it in general, this is really not true. Do they really think it is how it works? Those things would really not work in the business and private world, maybe in those made up worlds from children. It is true that a lot of people would try to connect with their friends and create some book blurbs but it is not true when they say that the blurbs are positive because of the friendship of the two people.
Take note that authors and publishers will always be giving most of their effort, time, and research for the book blurbs. In order for the readers to trust the book, the book blurbs are made for that reason. There are even some authors and publishers that would ask five or six people to make a book blurb for the book that they are making in order to know whether the book is good or bad.
One best way to build a good reputation from the press is to collect book blurbs. Because the world is full of anxiety, entrepreneurism, and distrust, there are so many small and independent publishers that would do the best they can for the readers, they would look for endorsements that can be trusted in order to improve their books and increase the trust that they will get from their readers. That is the reason why collecting positive book blurbs can be really helpful for all those small independent authors and publishers. A number of positive book blurbs on a certain book can go a long way when it comes to the trust of the readers.
