I've been wracking my brain over this for the past few days and I just can't seem to come up with a solid solution. My first novel is about to hit the shelves of Amazon.com and I don't know what an appropriate description length would be. I've seen some that were as short as 50 words and I've seen others as large as 500. I don't want to over-saturate the page with information but I don't want to leave anything out that might entice potential readers. In an essence, I'm stuck. I'll gladly send out my current draft to anyone willing to critique it or even post it in this thread. I have created a log-line for the book which I'm very happy with but I'd want the product description to convey a little more information to whet consumer's appetites. What's an author to do?
