YA Ink- How to Write a Novel Synopsis

The big question here is how you write a synopsis for your book. Well, that fancy word synopsis is the name for the short summary of your book that can be found on the inside jacket of a hardcover or the back cover of the book on a soft cover. Writing a synopsis can either be fun if you do the method I mention in the video, or it can be something you will agonize over for weeks or months if you’re anything like me. That’s why I tried my best to make writing the book synopsis as interesting as possible.

Please note: I have seen services on the internet that offer to write the synopsis you your book for you. DON’T DO IT! Who else knows your book better then you? No one. So take the time and write it yourself.

  1. I always tell people that if they’re confused as to how a novel synopsis should look, simply go to Wikipedia. Search any movie made in the last five years and the first thing on the page is the long “Plot” section, which is essentially a front-to-back synopsis. A lot of them are too long; a lot of them are poorly written; but some are good—and you will get a sense of how they work. Or —you could just let find good ones for you and edit them a bit.
