Get your synopsis right

 

 

How do you know your book’s genre? Authors often don’t want to be pigeon holed  = they don’t want to miss a potential audience. But when you are pitching your book, a genre is expected. What do you do? First of all, find put what’s put there by browsing a bookstore, online or on the high street. Common genres will include: Mystery: stories involving solving a crime – usually a murder. Romance: stories about love/intimacy. Women’s fiction: stories about women experiencing emotional growth. Next look at your book. Did you have a genre in mind when you wrote it? If not, with the above information, and what readers expect from each genre, where might your book fit? Which of the above audiences would be happiest with what you’ve written?

How are you doing?

As our limited movements continue, I'm wondering how you have dealt with it?  Any creative projects that you've always thought you had no time for? Solutions to those you are already working on? Maybe a new field you've never tried before. I'm glad to say that this space and time has accelerated my writing work and I've just finished the first draft of my new book. Editing and some rewriting come next and thern it will be on to the production stage. Let me hear what you have been up to!
