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

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. 

Don’t forget to visit others that day to see their answers. Want to join, or learn more? Visit our - Sign-up List.

If you could choose one author, living or dead, to be your beta partner, who would it be and why?

MY ANSWER - Without hesitation - Nora Roberts. As a bestselling author of multiple genres I would love to get her advice and insight. Attending a conference with her would be another dream.

How about you? Who would you choose, and why?
