How and Why to Write an Effective Author Bio
Readers often want to know about the person behind the book. Your story is important and people need to relate to who you are. Many authors struggle with their bio, so they give up and just copy their LinkedIn profile description, or rush the job to get it over and done with.
This piece of writing is too important not to give it serious attention – it’s a tool to help sell books, but more importantly it’s a means of connecting with readers who are strangers you might never meet or interact with directly. Yet you have to tell them enough about you, and in a way that engages, so they can connect with you as a writer.
This short course will give you ideas of what to write, examples of good and bad bios, and suggestions for where your author bio will be valuable.
