Copy that Sells Your Book
Your success in finding an agent, a publisher and book buyers rests heavily on the sell copy you create, especially the plot synopsis. It’s the key to your query letter, your elevator pitch, your book jacket cover, and every other opportunity you have to sell your book. Prepare three forms of your synopsis: one sentence, one paragraph, two hundred words. Submit work two weeks in advance to be part of the handout package.
