Can I write my synopsis in my characters voice? My book is written by my main character and one of the goals is to sway readers to believe the character is the real life author.... so would this be a good move or would it be harmful? Thank you,
DO NOT DO THIS.
This is one of those ideas that come to authors in the middle of the night.
Thinking "oh wow, this is clever" or "oh double wow this is really fresh and new!!"
and the next thing you know
Let's step back and think about what a synopsis needs to do to be effective:
1. Describe the plot and the major twists or unexpected turns.
2. Include the ending
3. Introduce and give a quick idea of the main characters.
All this in narrative form.
A synopsis is very useful for making sure you've got enough plot to carry the novel, and that the plot unfolds in a way that does not confuse me.
While you may want your reader to be persuaded your character wrote the book, that's for the NOVEL not the synopsis. The synopsis isn't supposed to be tricky or clever. That doesn't mean it has to be boring.
But I know who wrote your book. You did.
Don't waste time or my short attention span trying to be clever.
The place for clever is in the plot twists.
