Author Biography/About the Author
The Author biography should be no more than 50 words and should include the following:
Theme of your work. What do you write about? Are you a fiction or non-fiction writer? Have you published more than one novel? What’s your area of interest or expertise? In other words, give readers an idea of what they can expect from your book.
Your credentials. Show your qualifications and credibility to that a reader will feel validated in choosing your book to read. Stick to credentials that directly relates to the content of your book.
Personal touch. Add some color in your author bio by including small details about where you live or something interesting that might not obviously relate to your career writing but that makes you a more of interesting person. You may include your location, a brief illustration of your lifestyle, or a one-liner that illustrates what kind of author you are.
Marketing Headline/Keynote Statement
The Marketing Headline or “elevator pitch” should consist of one or two sentences that tell readers what the book is about and why they should buy it.
