*waves from under 3 massive edits!!*.
This week we are going to discuss what is arguably the most difficult part of the query, the dreaded synopsis.
Here are a couple of things to keep in mind:
1. The synopsis you include should be only 1-2 paragraphs, maximum. Any longer than that and you compromise the rest of your query and risk losing the attention of the whichever editor/agent you have reading it.
2. The query synopsis is the place for your book to do the talking. Including only relevant, interesting material and discussing the most important plot points and characters will speak volumes, whereas too much description, too many facts about unimportant side characters and those silly hook questions we discussed in the last segment may just stand to land your query in the bin.
