Some Rumors And Myths About Book Blurbs
Would you try to put a blurb on the back of your book that is not positive? You should know that many people most of the time would say that they have no trust on book blurbs. A lot of people like the reviewers, readers, and book buyers would seem to wonder why the authors and publishers would waste their time writing down a book blurb. Some people are even worse than that because they believe that the author is a close friend of the person who made the book blurb since the blurb of a certain book is positive. It does not matter if the two are friends or what that is because people would really love helping each other all the time. You would even make a positive book blurb if you have a friend who is an author of a book right? But if the book is not that good, you would never bother writing a book blurb. And instead, you will give him or her a constructive criticism.
But you should know that friendships are not the source of all book blurbs. The usual myth and rumors when it comes to book blurbs back then is that they are made because friends want to help each other. But this is really not the case on all the blurbs. 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. These book blurbs are intended for the readers for them to trust the books. 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 way for you to create a great reputation for the press is for you 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 why book blurbs can really be a great help for those small independent publishers and authors. A number of positive book blurbs on a certain book can go a long way when it comes to the trust of the readers.
