For the curious… here’s the breakdown of Bobbi’s Book Blurbs, Teasers & Tag Lines.
Q: Do you just do blurbs?
A-NO. I’ve done ad’s (for author signings, sales, etc) Same price ($25.00) and same rules. Don’t like (not using) NO CHARGE. Heck, I’ve even done personal birthday party invitations where they wanted something unique.
Q: How does it work? What do I need to send?
- A) Simply send me a brief rundown or your synopsis if done. I actually do (for the one price) several options and several teasers. I call it round one. Many love from the 1st shot. Some, want something more and others ask me to merge several of the options into one. I’ll take your notes/comments from round one and customize to your liking. But… if using (paying) ALL options are yours to use as they were created specifically for YOUR story. Use them for alternative blurbs/teasers, or toss. ALL options/attempts are yours to do with as you see fit.
Q: How does payment work?
- A) Upon completion (when customer is happy and loves their blurb) I’ll Paypal invoice you for $25.00.
Q: What about a blurb for a book bundle/boxed set I’m putting together? How much would that cost?
A: IF you’re putting a series together and just want the ONE blurb to represent the whole series… SAME PRICE! $25.00. I charge per blurb (with teasers and tags thrown in). So whether your set has 3 stories or 10, since its ONE blurb you want–its ONE charge.
Q: I’m redoing an old series and want fresh blurbs. How much would that cost?
A: Again, $25.00 per blurb, which includes, teasers and tag lines. So, $25.00 per story.
Q: What’s your turn-around time?
A: Usually within a few hours. Obviously if you sent a request late PM, I may not be up or may be on my way to bed. That said… I did have an author contact me once in the middle of working with Createspace and needed a blurb, like THEN. ASAP! I happened to be up and at 11:30 PM worked her blurb and had it back by Midnight.
Q: Anything else I need to know?
A: Please be polite. When working with you, I DO understand life happens, but if you experience a delay in being in contact… take the time for a quick email, “I’ll get back with you on XXX.” Nothing worse than being in the frame of mind for said authors work, then having days go by without word. If you don’t like, it’s okay… as an author too, I understand not everything will be everyone’s cup of tea. Simply let me know, the blurbs didn’t work, but hey, thanks for trying. I’m good with that and you won’t be charged.
What sets me apart? The no charge rule. If you don’t like/use, I’m not charging you. For most of us, we’re still struggling to make a living following our dream of writing. Last thing any of us need is to pay for anything (work related or other) we don’t need. A bad blurb, is NOT needed.
Special request. Like you money is limited… so, for now, I’m strictly working social media and word of mouth. (Thank you to the customers who have recommended me) Please help me spread the word by sharing or just mentioning when you hear someone in need or complaining they hate doing blurbs.- Thanks!
Hope to work with you soon,
