Each Wednesday, myself or one of the moderators will share a challenge, and on Sunday, one of us will explain how you can use that for your own writing. The Wednesday after, that challenge will appear on the blog, to help writers make the most of them.

Wednesday 27th November

On Wednesday 27th November, I set a challenge asking people to describe their book in four words. You can see the results of that challenge here.

The challenge

Describe your book in four keywords. They should not be your title, or your character descriptions.

The reason

Often, when we describe our books, we don’t actually look at the content or motifs within the book. We lock in on the most popular information in our books and find ourselves working within sets of keywords, and perhaps we can shake it up.

You can use these keywords (and others) in everything from your blurb to finding information to share on twitter that is related to your book (see my article on Keyword shares on the Author CEO).

The result

Hopefully, looking at your book in a new light, or considering the four strongest keywords will give you the chance to find new promotional information and set it up on the various sites you us.
