Response from non-f. editor: 1
Apparently, though the book is definitely credited to me but (as with most of their books) my name doesn’t appear on the cover. Editor spoke to the designer about this and she feels strongly that it will muck up the design to try to fit my name on. As I can see from Amazon, I was told, it is under my name, which will appear on the copyright page.
So, there you have it. Authors' names muck up cover designs.
Enough of that. Think the chapters are ready for the agent now, so will be working on synopsis for next few days. Read a synopsis article on Mslexia the other day and discovered have been doing it wrong all this time. Mine have been getting more like company proposals, full of bullet points and headings. I thought bullet points were the way everything was going, but apparently not. Have also only recently discovered that most agents and editors read the three chapters first, and only look at the synopsis if their interest has been whetted so there's not much point in spending too much time on the intro.
Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
