Print books need a description for the back of the cover (which is also used in online bookstores). The aim is to give the potential reader an idea of what the book's about, and to tempt them to buy.
If you click on the links for my three books on the left you can see the description I use for each (Turner, Cold Fusion 2000, 2000 Tunes). If you've read any of those books, can you think of a better way of describing them? Feel free to contact me with improvements or replacements - even a whole new description! (Or use the comments below). I'm going to be revising the books slightly so a new description could be part of that. I'll offer a choice of prizes for any suggestions that I use. Diolch!
