Can someone help me with reasons why an author might write a summary?
Authors write summaries of their own work:
to interest publishers
for book jackets
for publication in a magazine
Authors write summaries of the works of others for possible inclusion in their own works.
Often, to sell a book, the author will have a brief summary to entice customers to purchase the book. It is usually on the bok jacket.
Thank you :)
