If you are writing about a historical war, think about how to infuse the setting with details of the era, such as music, culture or political developments.Here are some additional things to think about when writing a fiction book description: 1. Be clear about the genre. There should be no confusion on the reader’s part as to what they’re about to buy. Also, keep the information to the main genre. In other words, if you’re writing a psychological thriller, don’t concentrate on the romantic subplot. 2. Hint at the climax, don’t reveal.Write the argument of your book in a sentence, then stretch that out to a paragraph, and then to a one-page outline.
