Can someone help me with reasons why an author might write a summary?

  • COM155 -

    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.
