Words in 3 Paragraphs.

Now that the book is finished, I feel both a sense of accomplishment, and a sense that a whole lot of subsequent book-related work needs to be done. Being unpublished, as I am, I must now write a short synopsis of the book which I will send to publishers asking if they'd like to read it or not. This synopsis must be less than a page, grab the reader's attention, and give away all the surprises because a publisher is not going to want to read a book that has a crappy ending. So, I have 80 thousand words to summarize in about 300 words. I'm finding this incredibly difficult to do. Nevertheless, I'm determined to get it done even though results will probably be disappointing. But, as the saying goes, "You never know."
