The Dreaded Synopsis

Redeyes

At the next Novel Writers Workshop scheduled this Thursday, we’ll tackle the synopsis. By following some basic suggestions, each writer will compose a one-pager and the rest of us will critique and offer our own suggestions. The goal? To produce one to entice an editor/publisher to read the manuscript instead of putting them to sleep.

I'm a novelist, short story writer, and I currently serve as Editor in Chief for The Knight Writers Magazine and CEO for L. Cooper Press, a service for writers. Thomson-Gale bought one of my novels, With Full Malice, for their 5 Star Mystery line, then Harlequin WorldWide Mysteries bought the mass market paperback rights. I lead a novel critique group in Redlands, CA, so if you're in the area and writing a novel, join us: http://www.meetup.com/SoCal-Novel-Writers-Workshop/ When I can't attend, M.L. Spencer, a fantastic fantasy author, leads the group. For information about The Knight Writers Magazine, check our website. We're always open to submissions: http://www.theknightwritersmagazine.com
