More than a little. More than a lot.
Maybe even alot:
But I recently changed my opinion on the value of synopsis at the query stage.
Way too many people send query pages that start the story at the wrong spot.
I end up passing on things that might actually be a good fit for my list if I could see where the story really begins.
I know, I know.
Insert sounds of wailing, gnashing of teeth and rending of writerly garments (not pants of course)
BUT I'm going to make it an option I think, not a requirement.
So, let me know your thoughts on this.
Any ideas about length, specificity of directions will be much appreciated.
