Write the right synopsis point nine. Giving the game away

  1. Do I need to give the game away and include the ending of my novel? A tricky one. There are agents who see the ending as important as part of the story. Others consider thry'd prefer to approachthe novel from the point of view of a reader. So, it is up to you and whatever feels right.

The Right synopsis: where are we?

Here we are at number nine of the points that make a synopsis hit the eye. Past, present or future...eery novel has a dimension of time. When is it set? Does it take place over a day, a month? Years? Where is it set? Even if it is in the present, don't just say 'now.' By the time your novel is, hopefully published, the 'now' will be in the past. Finally, don't confuse with loads of place names and dates. Keep it simple.
