I hope somebody can help me out. I have queried for a while and most agents have asked for a one or two page synopsis. Recently, I’ve noticed a change in the requirements. Some agents now write they want a one page synopsis, or if it’s longer than one page, to send a two page synopsis double-spaced, but no longer than two pages. Hmmm, now I’m seriously scratching my head. When I double-space a one page synopsis, of course it turns out to be a two-page synopsis. So I can’t really see the point in this, because well, obviously, there is no gain in words.
I just cut my original synopsis from a way too long 1500 down to 860 words, which I think is acceptable. But it’s 1 ½ pages, single spaced. So of course when I double space it, it’s 3 pages. So where do I go from here???? Double space it, not double space it, wish for the best???
Thanks for your help
