🎇20% OFF SYNOPSIS AND SUBMISSION PACKAGE🎇 #CreatingPerfection Sale is now on! If you’re struggling with your #synopsis #queryletter this could be the answer…

Now that your manuscript is finished, and you’ve decided not to self-publish, you need to find a publishing contract. This means you’ll either be submitting to publishers directly, or looking for an agent to work on your behalf.

Either way, the format for approaching both is similar. You’ll be asked to provide three things:

  1. Cover letter
  2. Synopsis
  3. Sample chapters

The sample chapters shouldn’t be an issue, you’ve already written the manuscript so there’s nothing much to do there.

It’s the other two documents which now need your attention.

Most writers start by scouring the Internet and speaking to everyone they know who can offer their help and advice to write a cover letter – yet it may still not be enough to help you feel confident about taking the plunge.

After all, you only get one chance to make a first impression.

What if you do find the courage to send it out, but six months later you’ve had twenty rejection letters and the rest haven’t bothered replying?

Then what?

Now is the time to get your complete submission package appraised by an expert.

I offer a unique Submission Critique Package, not only will I work on the details below, I will fully edit all three documents in terms of spelling, punctuation, and grammar; and complete a line edit on the sample chapters.
