Summary judgment

Don’t get mired in details when wooing an agent with your book synopsis

Dear Agony Editor, I’ve been trying to get an agent for my first novel. One agent told me to send her a one-page synopsis. I’m not sure how to write one or what kind of information it should contain. Should it be a detailed overview of the book’s plot or should it be more highlevel and promotional?

Signed, Pitch Perfect
