A Brilliant Guide to Writing a Book Synopsis

How to Write a Synopsis for Your Novel

by Glen C. Strathy

This article is by far the most helpful and instructive guide that I have read so far for aspiring novelists

in their quest to achieve representation or to obtain a professional edit/review of their work.

I have included the Bio information from Glen's blog but I have included a link to his site for the basic

guidance on synopsis writing.

Follow the link below or click on the title above to go to the article on writing a synopsis.

The whole blog is packed with useful expert information and I am grateful to Glen for this incredible

source of  helpful material on writing and getting published.

  2. My readership is growing-slowly-but it puts a smile on my face to know that
    someone out there is actually reading me. You want to sell yourself, not to degrade yourself.
    With the correct theme, you can accommodate
    all the nifty little widgets and codes, and may also mean better
    search engine rankings and tons of fresh traffic every day.
