Writing your bio:

3. The length should be approximately 100-150 words (maximum 1000 characters, including spaces).

4. You should compose your bio in a word processing program, then copy and paste it into the space provided below.

5. Be aware that your formatting (typestyle, size, boldface, italics, underlines, etc.) will be lost. Our online content editors will italicize the title of each book.
