Greetings Writers:

 

My WIP is prescriptive self help re. wellness, happiness, + meditation.

I want jacket blurbs, or at least commitments to provide such, from celebs and experts prior

to submitting a query.  What parts of the WIP are to be sent to experts who I know:

synopsis, proposal, table of contents, chapter summaries, introduction, initial chapter?

In contrast, what parts are to be sent to celebs and experts who I do not know?

 

I have not seen this topic addressed in books or on websites for writers.

Your opinion is valued even if you have not had experience with soliciting blurbs.

 

Regards,

Actually, any sort of endorsement is arranged by your agent/publisher. If you know these people personally, then why not ask for an endorsement?

Greetings Storyteller Darke,

 

Indeed, I am planning to ask the colleagues directly.  

 

Does anyone have an opinion re. the parts of the nonfiction ms that are to be submitted thereto?  Sending such is essential to help

them write a pertinent blurb.

 

Regards,
