Chiseled in Rock Tuesday: Janet Lane's Article on the Dreaded Synopsis

I've reprinted historical romance author Janet Lane's article on writing synopses from the August 2011 edition of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer's newsletter, Rocky Mountain Writer (with Janet's permission, of course).

It's very entertaining (which seems like an oxymoron when we're discussing the dreaded synopsis). Come on over to Chiseled in Rock and see for yourself.

I've read this before! Sadly, it's not synopses that befuddle me. It's the dreaded query letter that stumps me every time.

Great to meet you, Patricia! I'm a new follower.
