Book Blurbs – Rumors And Myths That You Should Know About
Are you willing to put a negative book blurb at the back of your book? 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. 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 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 if the book is not that good, you would never bother writing a book blurb. You would provide your friend with a constructive criticism instead.
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 actually not true when you think of it in general. Do they really think it is how it works? Maybe in some other make believe worlds, but it does not really work well in the private and business world. Yes it is true that people would usually connect with their friends and make blurbs but the think about friendship which is the reason why the blurbs are positive is not true.
You should know that authors and publishers would exert a lot of effort, research and time into 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 best way to build a good reputation from the press is to collect book blurbs. There are so many small independent publishers today that would go an extra mile for the readers of their books because the world that we live in today is full of entrepreneurism, distrust, and anxiety, that is why they would look for endorsements that can be trusted in order to have improvements on their books and to increase the trust that their readers have for them. That is why book blurbs can really be a great help for those small independent publishers and authors. The readers will have a good faith on a certain book if that book has a series of positive book blurbs.
