Front (& Back) Matter | Why I believe this is at least as important as the chapters

What is "all that stuff" at the front and back of a book?

As a reader, you might skip it.

As an author, it's critical to the creation of the book.

We're talking about:

  • Copyright
  • Dedication
  • Epigraph
  • Table of Contents
  • Foreword
  • Preface
  • Acknowledgment
  • Epilogue
  • About the Author
  • Also by the Author

Seems like easy stuff to skip, right?

Not so fast, Pendergrass!
