I need to write a book description. I always find this really difficult because rather than paraphrase what the book is kind of about, I just want to talk about all of it. Then, when I consciously try to summarize the story, I summarize too much. Basically, if someone asks me “what’s your book about?” I’ll either answer with a detailed explanation of each chapter, or simply say things.
I also realize that I need to include a page on copyright (right?). With dates and names and other legal stuff. It was the fact that I did so much paperwork yesterday (and got nowhere) that I was struck with the awful feeling that I need to make up complex jargon myself. I guess I’ll just stick it somewhere in the back.
