        Book promotion expert Ben Cameron always says “writing the blurb is the hardest words you’ll ever write”, and many authors are also stumped when it comes to writing the front and back matter – another task that usually falls just when you’re feeling least like writing another word, after completing your book’s final edit. Summary Having developed in Book I his argument concerning the nonexistence of innate ideas, Locke undertakes in Book II to describe in detail the process by means of which ideas come to be present in human minds. His fundamental thesis is that experience alone is adequate to account for all the ideas included in anyone's store of knowledge.

        What is the Back Matter of a Book? For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been doing a blog series on the back matter of a book. (We did a similar one on the front matter) You’ll remember that the front matter is all of the material that comes before the central story – or body text – in a book. The Heart of the Matter () is a novel by English author Graham book details a life-changing moral crisis for Henry Scobie. Greene, a former British intelligence officer in Freetown, British Sierra Leone, drew on his experience gh Freetown is not mentioned in the novel, Greene confirms the location in his memoir, Ways of Escape.

      How to use your book’s back matter to MASSIVELY boost your fanbase, get more shares, and explode your platform. So my books are doing pretty good; I’ve moved Shearwater to permafree and got over 5, downloads this month. But that made me realize I was probably missing a MAJOR opportunity to connect with those readers, so I checked my back. When Ideas Matter: Speeches for an Ethical Republic review: a president’s philosophy. Michael D Higgins’s uses his gift for words to powerful effect, exploring lessons from the past.
