Most writers hate writing synopses, and no wonder. After you've agonized over several hundred pages to make your prose absolutely perfect, how could you possibly distill that down to a measly ten or twenty pages? Or, in some cases, one or two pages? Writing the Fiction Synopsis takes the reader through a step-by-step process and explains what’s vitally important to put in the synopsis . . . and what you should leave out. (Revised and updated)

“I’d been to Pam McCutcheon’s online workshop on synopsis and found it really helpful, so I bought this book, too.  (Watch out everyone, I’m going to gush.)  This is by far the best book I’ve ever seen on writing a synopsis!!  And like you and many others, I’ve gone nuts trying to get my synopsis to say what it needs to say in an interesting and concise way without making it a yawner.  I’m also one of those authors who writes a rough synopsis as a road map after I’ve written about 3 chapters of a book to keep me on track.  This book makes it so easy.  I have all three of the books at Gryphon along with a whole shelf full of reference books and I tell you, the Gryphon books blow the others away.  If you buy one book on writing a synopsis, buy this one.”

— Lisa Mondello

“After several years of classes and lectures on synopses, I was totally confused.  When Pam McCutcheon taught her method of writing the dreaded synopsis, it all came together and I hit the ‘aha’ response.    Ms. McCutcheon makes synopsis writing easy!  Every writer will benefit from this book.” 

— Kathleen Wells, Ph.D.
