What Is a One Sentence Blurb?

TALKING MAMA HOME is about one girl's struggle to keep her family intact and the friend who helps her.

The above sentence is from my work-in-progress middle-grade novel, TALKING MAMA HOME. It is important to write a one sentence blurb for our stories. We need to be ready when we're asked by an editor, agent, teacher, or anyone what our story is about. After the sentence is a great one, expand to a three to five sentence paragraph for the query letter we'll need to send out to an editor or agent.

More snippets of TALKING MAMA HOME coming soon.

Have a blessed Sunday!
