Well, I've just completed the 4th revision of my 1st book (after not touching it for 3 months) and I feel it's about time I work on a few other parts of it before I dive in it once more (I promised myself that after 5 revisions, I'm done... Or so I say). So, I read a few examples/templates about acknowledgments and the about the author section and (go figure) they're all fairly different. After taking the best parts of each example, I was able to build two nice drafts but I would love to get some opinions on them. I didn't see this section in the review area of the forums but if anyone out there is willing I'd love to share my stuff to see how I can improve. What do you guys think makes a solid "About the Author section? I've heard anything past 300 words is too much and anything under 100 is too little. My main concern is that I am a first time writer and I tried my darnedest to make it sound pleasant and complimentary without tooting my own horn.
