5-Word Hooks: How To Be a Good Friend

5-Word Hooks: How To Be a Good Friend
This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series 5-Word Hooks

Give what you’d to receive.

I’m following Brian Meeks’ homework from his book “Mastering Amazon Descriptions: An Author’s Guide: Copywriting for Authors” and writing 5-word pitches, hooks, taglines, subtitles, for books I have written or, better yet, have not yet written.

It’s fall 2019 and my 15-year-old son and I are working on his next book.

It might be a book about How To Be a Good Friend. I like Brian’s technique BEFORE you write the book to see if you can get to the core of the meaning or message of your book before you write it.

It can be tough, tiring, slow going, but then can flow.

Let’s give it a go.

PRO TIP: Keep in mind that if it doesn’t work out, or work well, or you get completely stuck, that’s OK. It might just mean this book isn’t the one to write.
