Laura Anne Gilman will write or revise your book’s flap copy!

Laura says:

I am offering to write-from-scratch or revise existing copy (limit 300 words) for an indie publication (novel or collection, any genre). I spent nearly 20 years writing/revising flap copy for major NYC publishers, including Penguin, S&S, and Harlequin, and offer that service now on a freelance basis. Valuation: $250

Please note: This is not a manuscript critique or review blurb. This is for the compelling summary of the book you would find on the back of a paperback or inside flap of a hardcover.

Laura Anne Gilman’s work has been hailed as “a true American myth being found” by NPR,  praised for her “deft plotting and first-class characters” by Publishers Weekly, and has been shortlisted for the Nebula Award, the Endeavor Award, and the Washington State Book Awards.   Her novels include the Locus-bestselling weird western series The Devil’s West, the long-running Cosa Nostradamus urban fantasy series, and the “Vineart War” trilogy, as well as as well as the short story collections WEST WINDS’ FOOL and DARKLY HUMAN.  

A former New Yorker and recovering book editor, she currently lives outside of Seattle with two cats and many deadlines.  More information and updates can be found at

At the end of the auction, we will contact the winner to arrange the service.

Worldbuilders is very grateful to Laura Anne Gilman for this donation.
