About This Gig

Struggling with back cover or product description copy for your book? Can't quite nail the tone, the length or the right hook? Don't worry, you aren't alone! What's more, you have help.

I'm a multi-published author in traditional and indie publishing venues, with a long history of writing cover copy for myself, and vetting or writing it for others. My specialties are in creating cover copy that provides immediate impact and leaves lasting interest, and formulating each description for the targeted market.

Services Offered
Whether you need existing cover copy or descriptions edited, or need something written from scratch, I'm here to help you represent your fiction with the best descriptive text. Base packages involve using a synopsis to do so, while upgrades offer shortened time frames, extra words, feedback on choices made and why, and even the opportunity to skip the synopsis entirely and have me write copy after reading your book in depth.


I have experience writing and editing back cover copy for:
  • SF/F 
  • romance (contemporary, historical, paranormal)
  • urban fantasy
  • genre-bending audiences
  • serial parts (with and without cliffhangers)
  • mysteries (cozy and thriller)

... and more!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you provide cover copy for non-fiction authors?
    Not at this time! However, this may present itself as an opportunity in the future.
  • Do I have to provide a synopsis?
    Base packages require a synopsis, however you don't have to! You can skip the synopsis entirely and choose a package feature that allows me to write the cover copy after reading your book, ensuring that I provide the best nuance possible.
  • If I send a synopsis, how long does it have to be?
    Any synopsis sent should contain the salient parts of the work: characters, goals, motivations, and threats or ultimate conflicts. However, it doesn't have to be an essay itself! Synopses can be between 1 and 5 (double-spaced) pages, and may include follow up questions from me.
  • Will you provide a blurb for my book?
    Not if I'm hired by you to edit/write the copy! It's a major conflict of interest. Also, I only handle blurb requests via my agent, and I promise you I'm a better cover copy writer than I am a blurber, anyway.
  • Why do you charge to read the book first?
    Most of the time, I can get a solid grasp on good copy via the synopsis and some questions directed at the author. However, there are times when an author prefers to have the cover writer read the book to understand voice and tone. This is a very large time commitment, so is priced accordingly.
  • Do you only work with full length books?
    No, I can work with serials, shorter works, and anthologies. Anything that needs back cover copy or a product description counts. Note that pricing for serials differ. See my other available services if you need serial copy help (coming soon!).
