Keep a document on your desktop with various iterations of your bio, including versions at 50 words, 100 words, 200 words, and 500 words. Update details when a new book is released or as life changes.

It can be difficult to write your bio and toot your own horn, but it’s an essential part of your marketing collateral. If you need help, ask others to review your work and give you feedback, or hire a great copywriter to help you get a foundation. You can also share your bio in multiple lengths on your website, either in your “About” page or on your “Media/Press” page.
