This collection includes 5 tips on hunting agents and editors, writing a good synopsis & a good log line (two sentence) pitch, and whether or not to revise on spec.
In Hunting for an Agent, I cover the pros and cons of sending queries out to one or two carefully selected agents, or to every agent you can think of all at once. And both approaches do have pros and cons!
In Writing the Dread Synopsis, and A Tale of two Synopsises, I explain how to craft a synopsis that works. It's never easy, but I can tell you what you need to leave out, and how to make it come alive--which helps a lot.
Scoring in the Elevator tells you how to craft a good one or two sentence answer to that ubiquitous question, "So, what's your book about, anyway?"
Some pros say you should never revise for an agent or editor who hasn't agreed to buy your work, some say you always should. Do you want a Cookie, tackles that question, and describes the pitfalls of both those answers.
