I have always struggled with blurb writing. I know it's what sells books and is very important, but I didn't know where to start, what to include or how to let the reader know what kind of book it was without being long winded. This blurb writing one-day workshop was exactly what I needed. The handout is a resource I will be able to use for years to come, plus the feedback allowed me to write and edit several blurbs that I can start using today.
