Synopses & Reviews
Novelists, often unfamiliar with how to successfully submit a novel to publishers or agents, are guided through the steps of creating synopses, queries, and sample chapters. Lyon includes successful synopses representative of all the genres and mainstream fiction, some from well-known authors, with critiques from agents.
This book fills a void since other books speaking to queries focus mainly on nonfiction. It is much needed since novelists are competing. for the attention of publishers and agents in a shrinking fiction market.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 275-284) and index.
