Product Description

A step-by-step guide for crafting a stellar synopsis.
With special focus on romance, learn how to construct an engaging and fresh synopsis that contains all vital information while hooking the reader, maintaining tension and emotion.
The Simply Synopsis strategy will help analyze your story, allowing you to extract the key elements to include, whilst guiding you on how to determine what plot points and events to leave out.
It helps formulate the building blocks of the synopsis – the orientation, the major turning points, the resolution and the conclusion – and then demonstrates how to structure these paragraphs before piecing them together in a way that is engaging and exciting for the reader.
It covers tone, vocabulary, point of view and pacing. It looks at backstory – how and where does this fit into a synopsis? Secondary characters and secondary plots – yes or no? World-building – how much is enough?
The Simply Synopsis strategy is simple and straightforward, a step-by-step process that makes the daunting task of synopsis creation much less daunting.
