About This Class

You'd rather clean your entire house or do a week's worth of laundry rather than sit down and write a synopsis for your novel?

Does this sound like you?

If so, you're not alone because it's often the least favorite chore of an author and the reason I created this easy to follow class showing you what to do and what not to do. I offer shortcuts and tips on how to write the perfect synopsis not only for your current story but future ones too.

I've even included a template you can store on your computer that makes synopsis writing fun and easy.

So enroll now and learn to write a synopsis that does your wonderful story justice and has editors and agents requesting to see it.
