How You End it Matters

Maybe you have started writing your idea for a book or have it in the hands of an editor. Have you started outlining your back matter?πŸ€” I’m sharing these “Writing Tips” that cover steps for what to include for your “back matter” as part of my writing journey:

First, the back matter wraps up as the concluding section of a book and it can contain a lot of detailed information. Many of these sections are entirely optional. You take and use what’s best for you. It comes after the body text and includes sections that provide further reading, broader explanations, and any final thoughts from the author or another writer. πŸ˜‰

Secondly, the back matter could include the following for adult Nonfiction or children’s books: the epilogue, acknowledgments (these can go in the front matter, too), discussion section, glossary, bibliography, vocabulary list, lesson plans, activity pages, about the author, about the illustrator, and index.πŸ’»

Finally, the following list could include back matter statements for how you can be contacted as the reader finishes your book:
1) Sign Up. (Be the first to know when I have a new release or sign up for my email newsletters at www.)
2) Share it. (If you liked this book please loan your copy to a friend).
3) Review it. (Please consider leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads. Your review is immensely invaluable to authors as it helps spread the word about their story.)
4. Connect with me. (Stop by on my FB or IG Page to chat, for updates, cover reveal, and/or drop an email through my website. Share a picture with me using the #hashtag of the book so I can personally thank you. ✍🏾 πŸ–ŠπŸ“”
