Writing a Sell Sheet

What is a sell sheet? It's like a flyer announcing your book. It is similar to a press release but is oriented to selling your book to potential buyers.

The sell sheet needs to be one page in length and contain all of the important elements regarding your book. (Publisher contact information, ISBN#'s, etc.)

It also needs to contain Author information, a plot summary and any other noteworthy information that you feel will help buyers decide to buy.

Target your market. Gear each sell sheet a little differently whether you are selling to a bookstore, library, or a reader's group.
