This is just one way to write a synopsis when the book has already been written. Read through one scene, after you have read the scene, write a sentence or so summary of that scene. Repeat this for each scene in the book. Once you have finished reading the book, you’ll have a synopsis! You’ll then need to expand/contract this synopsis in order to suit a publisher’s guidelines. If they want chapter-by-chapter synopsis, then you’ll break your synopsis up into chapters. If the publisher wants a three-page synopsis, then you’ll need to rephrase, paraphrase, cut words, etc, to suit the demands of that particular publisher. It’s a fun exercise to try once the book is done.
Until next time,
