Freelance Book Summary / Back Cover Writers We Recommend

If you hire a writer for your book summary / back cover writing needs, you will pay them directly. We are only referring you to them. We do not hire them for you.

A WARNING ABOUT LETTING YOUR PUBLISHER WRITE YOUR BOOK SUMMARY OR BACK COVER MATERIAL: Many print on demand publishers and publishing service providers now claim ownership of their author’s files (what they call the “production files”) even though authors paid THEM for the service. We call this a “forced marriage” because it makes it almost impossible for an author to move to another publisher someday, even if they are unhappy with their current publisher. We strongly recommend NOT paying a publisher create your book summary / back cover text. Freelancers don’t try to claim ownership of an author’s files.

All I can really say is that I will use Kristine for every edit / copyedit job I have both personally and professionally. She knocked it out of the park! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!”

“K. Smith did editorial work on a manuscript for me, and did such a great job the first time that I used her again on the next manuscript I published. She is very professional and will work with your needs and goals in mind. She will offer suggestions and collaborate if you ask her for her professional opinion. I highly recommend K. Smith for any copy writing or copy-enhanced work!”
