If the answer is a resounding "YES!", Comely Bank Publishing would like to offer you a fantastic new service.
Writing a synopsis for your book before you start writing is the best way to proceed as it gives you the skeleton to then flesh out with your prose.
But writing a synopsis is REALLY difficult... and that's where we come in. You send us your synopsis (and a first chapter of up to 4,000 words if you have written that too) and we review it for you:
1. we think about whether the story "works"
2. we think about whether it will make a compelling read and;
3. we think about where it might be improved.
And then we tell you if your first chapter makes us desperate to read more of your book. We're writers ourselves, but more than that we are prolific readers who read extensively across many genres.
In return, we ask only that you buy one of the Comely Bank Publishing Books - Four Old Geezers and a Valkyrie by Gordon Lawrie, The Man from Outremer by TD Burke, or Katie and the Deelans by Emma Baird (two more titles are due out early next year) - hard copies if you live in the UK, and e-copies if you are outside of the UK.
In exchange, we'll read your synopsis and first chapter, and give you prompt feedback.
