Writing a ‘Synopsis’ is not one of life’s pleasures.

One of the rewards for creating a great novel is writing a bunch of synopses that target a different need. It’s a chore required from an author and it isn’t one of life’s pleasures – agents want them, publishers need them the consumer should see them.
