Book descriptions that sell : learn killer strategies for writing book descriptions to make bestselling books! by Gary Webb( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Do You Know the 12 Proven Steps To Write Book Descriptions to Make Your Book Sell? Nonfiction authors often neglect being creative when writing book descriptions. They imagine that the great content inside the book will make it a success. What a joke! Writing book descriptions is a form of copy writing--it’s advertising! You are not just telling what is inside the covers. You are telling the potential reader why they should buy the book. You are telling them in a way that appeals to both their reason and emotions. It is literally an art form of its own, but you can learn to do far better than most of the descriptions on the Net. In this 12-step book, you’ll learn everything you need to write compelling, interesting, and persuasive book descriptions. As a result: • You’ll have more initial sales of your books than you would have had without it. • You will have fewer bad reviews because your readers will know in advance what they are getting. • You will understand your competition and write better descriptions than they have. • You will attract more readers to your book page through the words included in the description. • You will learn how to close the sale through an effective call to action. Look at the book descriptions on Amazon! Most of them are poorly organized and unattractive. Most don’t answer the reader’s most important question, “What’s in it for me?” This book is your first step in mastering the fine art of book descriptions that sell"--

Mark at the threshold : applying Bakhtinian categories to Markan characterisation by Geoff R Webb( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The discussion concerning Markan characterisation (and Markan genre) can be helpfully informed by Bakhtinian categories. This book uses the twin foci of chronotope and carnival to examine specific characters in terms of different levels of dialogue. Various passages in Mark are examined, and thresholds are noted between interindividual character-zones, and between the hearing-reader and text-voices. Several generic contacts are shown to have shaped the text's 'genre-memory' - in particular, the Graeco-Roman popular literature of the ancient world. The resultant picture is of an earthy, populis

Killing Game by Gary Webb( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gary Webb had an inborn journalistic tendency to track down corruption and expose it. For over thirty-four years, he wrote stories about corruption from county, state, and federal levels. He had an almost magnetic effect to these kinds of stories, and it was almost as if the stories found him. It was his gift, and, ultimately, it was his downfall. He was best known for his story Dark Alliance, written for the San Jose Mercury News in 1996. In it Webb linked the CIA to the crack-cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles during the Iran Contra scandal. His only published book, Dark Alliance is still a classic of contemporary journalism. But his life consisted of much more than this one story, and The Killing Game is a collection of his best investigative stories from his beginning at the Kentucky Post to his end at the Sacramento News & Review. It includes Webb's series at the Kentucky Post on organized crime in the coal industry, at the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Ohio State's negligent medical board, and on the US military's funding of first-person shooter video games. The Killing Game is a dedication to his life's work outside of Dark Alliance, and it's an exhibition of investigative journalism in its truest form
