Synopsis Writing Services
Do you know the difference between a book synopsis and a book blurb? They are both a summary of your book, but are written differently and target different audiences. A synopsis can be used for pitching your book to a publisher or agent or providing beta readers or book bloggers with a longer summary to determine if the book is a good fit for them. It gives the reader a unique point of view to decide if they are interested in your manuscript.
Why do you need a synopsis of your book?
A synopsis is a longer summary of your manuscript, with more details than a book blurb. It can help you market your book better upon publishing it. You will be able to reference the synopsis if you are marketing more than one book at a time or are asked to discuss it after being slightly removed from all of the book’s nuances.
When sending a synopsis to an agent or publisher, it should be clear, tell the reader about the major plot points and characters, and emphasize the book’s draw for readers. An agent or publisher can use the synopsis to determine if they want to take you on as a client.
For beta readers and book bloggers, the synopsis works as a way to determine if reviewing the book will fit into the genres they read or review.
Authors want favorable reviews for their books, so finding beta readers and book bloggers who are interested in the book is important. A synopsis can help authors find those people to read and review their manuscripts before it is published.
Format of a Synopsis
There is a basic format for writing a synopsis. The format of the synopsis will depend on the genre of the manuscript, but most will follow the same format. It begins with identifying your protagonist and details about the setting. Followed by discussing major plot points or twists, without revealing the ending, and then the conflict. Then it ends with how the conflicts will be resolved. The synopsis is clear and to the point.
My Synopsis Writing Service
The only way to truly know a book is to read it. Due to this, the synopsis writing service is only available as an add-on to an editing project.
For clients who are having me edit your writing projects, you can choose to add-on the option of having me write a book synopsis. The synopsis will be up to 250 words and will include details on your main character(s) and plot points, as well as other information to entice a publisher, agent, or other person reading the synopsis to read your entire book.
You want your synopsis to be clear and describe your story and characters without revealing major plot twists. Due to how your book synopsis can be used, it is essential you are pleased with it. The synopsis writing service includes two to three revisions and if more edits are still desired after the original revisions, additional charges will apply.
Contracts and Cost
The cost of the synopsis writing service, including revisions, is $230 for up to 250 words. Each synopsis writing service will require a contract. As an add-on service only available to current clients whom I am doing editing projects for, I can include the synopsis writing service in the original contract. If you decide later on during the editing project that you would like me to write a synopsis for your book, I can amend the original contract to add-on the synopsis service.
