I had a great trip and got a lot accomplished. My friend (who is a writing/reading prof and a writer herself) and I spent a lot of time on the synopsis for INTO THE DARK. We cleaned up the prose quite a bit and reworded it so it read more like a suspense novel, because that’s what the book is. The romance is a strong part of the book, but it’s driven by the suspense/conflict. Combing through the synopsis helped me to uncover three plot issues that were minor but made the book less believable. I fixed those, and then we came up with a great query. We used part of what I had, but the new query again focuses on the suspense instead of making the book sound like it’s all romance. I’m really excited about what we accomplished!
