Blurbs, Bios and the Dreaded Synopsis
Guest Speaker: Ariella Moon, Author, YA
Award-winning author Ariella Moon draws upon her experiences as a shaman to create magical Young Adult fiction. She won the Aspen Gold Readers’ Choice Award for Best Romantic Short Story for “Covert Hearts,” which appears in Second Chances: A Romance Writers of America Collection. Discover her medieval Two Realms fantasy series and her contemporary Teen Wytche Saga novels at online book retailers and at www.ariellamoon.com.

She lives a nearly normal life doting on her extraordinary daughter, two shamelessly spoiled dogs, and a media-shy dragon.
Do you dread writing a synopsis? Is crafting back cover blurbs challenging? Are you unsure of what to include in your author bio?
In “Blurbs, Bios, and the Dreaded Synopsis,” Ariella Moon will guide you through these critical marketing pieces. You will discover:
- The key elements acquiring editors expect in a synopsis.
- How to distill your manuscript into enticing cover copy.
- How genre and author branding should influence your bio.
This will be an interactive writing lab, designed to hone your skill. For reference, you are encouraged to bring a hard copy (or laptop for accessing your files) of your current blurb, bio, and/or synopsis, even if you only have rough drafts.
