Many books are purchased or read based on the image on the front cover, or the description on the back cover.
If you are interested: write a description of your own as if you were publishing a book you might write. The information you provide should let the reader know if this is fiction or nonfiction, offer a glimpse of the main characters, setting, and conflicts involved.
Can you do this in 100 words or less? There is a contest you can submit this to for a chance to win $500. The deadline for entry is September 15, 2020 at noon Eastern Time. For more information, please visit: https://www.queryletter.com/contest

We post the first Wednesday of every month. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. You can also join us on twitter using the hashtag #IWSG, or on the Facebook page.Now, IWSG hosts have changed up the format in an effort to make it more fun and interactive.Every month, they will announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
