Cressida DowningYOU COULD WIN a synopsis review (first prize) or one of three Writers' & Artists' Yearbooks (runners-up)!

View this as a writing exercise! The rules are, you have no more than 50 words to encapsulate your novel, and give me, acting as editor, a reason to contact you.  Comments on other people's entries are welcome (but please keep them polite and relevant).

The best entry will win a synopsis review from me, and three runners-up will each receive a copy of the Writers' & Artists' Yearbook 2011. The competition will run for one week, starting now.

I've got my cup of coffee in hand, and my feet up - GO!

PS the small print:

I will choose the winner - according to which entry sounds most like a book I'd like to read.  Judge's decision is final.
Synopsis review will be returned within a week after end of competition - and consist of advice on style, content, and approach - approx 300-500 words of critique.  Synopsis to be no more than 2 pages of single-sided A4.  I will email the winner to get the synopsis.
