Skimmers usually have short attention spans and very little time.
This means they want to understand what your book is about as quickly as possible. You can do this by making your description as easy to digest as possible by eschewing large blocks of descriptive text in favor of lists, bullet points, and short meaningful sentences.
Are you exposing a truth that will shock and anger people? Have you written a story that will touch hearts and inspire? Power words are evocative words that get an emotional response.
Use the right words and you can tap into the right emotions and motivate your audience to take a closer look at your book. If you think your book is clever or funny, share a snippet of dialogue.
If you think you have a character that people will love, write a brief description of him. Limit yourself to words or less when you write your description. This will force you to be self-disciplined in your writing and stick to the real selling points of your book.
If you can pare your description down even further, to words, your description will be even more compelling. Include these positive quotes in your book description.
