Romance novel blurb clean up service
Since we started our blurb critique service, there’s one question we get from romance authors over and over (and over) again.
WILL YOU JUST WRITE THE DARN THING FOR ME????
Well, the answer to that question is, sadly, no. We won’t write a blurb for you from scratch because we sincerely feel like no one can sell your book as passionately and effectively as you can. We don’t want to impose our writing voice over yours. BUT...what we ARE willing to do at this point is offer a clean-up service for your blurb’s first draft.
Does that all make sense or do you need more info?
Ha! Just kidding. Of course you have questions. Lucky for you, we've already thought of most of them and have conveniently provided the answers below. You're welcome.
How does the clean-up service differ from your critique service?
Our critique service is really just a line-by-line review of your blurb. We tell you what we like about it, and what we don’t like. We don’t necessarily give you verbatim suggestions for how to change the blurb. Check out samples of past blurb critiques.
In contrast, with our clean-up service, we’ll take your blurb’s first draft and polish it to the best of our ability to make it: a) Succinct, b) Appealing to romance genre super-readers, and c) Include keywords and phrases (when possible) that we know romance readers are searching Amazon for monthly. We’ll also do our best to use as many of your words as possible so that your unique writing voice is preserved.
Can you provide an example of a blurb you’ve cleaned-up?
Yep. Sure can!
What’s the cost?
We’ll clean-up the first draft of your blurb, one time, for $35.
What’s the turn-around time?
We ask that you allow us up to 7-10 business days to complete the work. Sometimes we can get it done a lot faster than that...but sometimes life just has a way of slowing us down, you know? We’ll get it back to you as quickly as possible, though. Pinky swear! If you need a quicker turnaround time, email us and arrangements can be made. (Additional charges for rush jobs will apply)
What makes YOU qualified to do this for ME?
Well, I can’t say that I appreciate your tone on that question, but I’ll allow it. (*smile*) Here at Romance Rehab, we’re super-readers of the romance genre. We read 5-10 books a week. We ARE your target audience. If we’d buy your book based on your blurb, it’s safe to say that most other romance readers would, too. So we know what works in a blurb and what doesn’t. And if THAT doesn’t do it for you, we’re also marketing experts with over 25 years of experience with producing effective sales copy. We even have a bestselling author at our disposal when we have questions or need publishing/authorly help. Not to mention the 200+ blurbs we’ve critiqued in the past few months... (Blurbs that when revised, according to our clients, have been known to increase the authors’ revenue substantially.) Long-story-short: we’re qualified.
What if I don’t like the cleaned-up version of the blurb?
You can use whatever parts of the cleaned-up version you want—and you can ignore anything you don’t like. It’s your book, and no one is the boss of you. Now, if you’re asking if we’re offering a money-back-satisfaction guarantee, well, the answer is no. You’re paying us for a version of your blurb that would appeal to romance super-readers. We’ll give you that. If you’re unhappy with it, that’ll bum us out, but we will always hold up our end of the bargain, give you our best work, and earn our payment.
What happens if I pay you for a cleaned-up version of my blurb and you aren’t able to make it better?
One thing we’ve learned about authors is that they’re often a little insecure when it comes to writing a blurb. That can lead them to question their skills and sometimes think their blurbs are awful, even when they aren’t. If your blurb is so great that it can’t be improved (hey, it’s happened before), we’ll let you know and we’ll refund your money. (Note: That refund applies to the clean-up service only, not the critique service.)
