Work Description: Provide a description and key plot points. If you have an existing blurb, include it here. If you have a synopsis, you’ll be asked to include it under Synopsis.

Genre: use as many as you need, i.e. “young adult historical romance”, or “extraplanetary space alien Western”, or “adventure comedy”.

Setting: The setting description can be as simple or complex as you like, for instance, “present day Boston.” Or “Set on the planet Xorg in the 23rd Quatrain Year, a water-based world in the third galaxy, values honesty and free-expression, ruled by vicious overlord.”

Characters: Use as many adjectives as you can think of when describing characters. For example, “Susan Smith is a tall, blonde, female, gawky, socially awkward, dreamer, journalist who loves cupcakes, Chopin, and her cat, Mr. Biggie. Becomes invisible in the moonlight.” Please be sure to include the full name (first and last) of the character as it should appear in the blurb. (If there are more than 2 protagonists, add the same information under Additional Information.) Descriptions of goals and obstacles (conflict/stakes) are required .

First Five Pages: Please insert the first five pages of the novel (or any section you prefer of about 1250 words). This provides a feel for the ‘voice’ and tone of the novel so the blurb can be developed to match.

Synopsis: OPTIONAL. A synopsis should be approximately 1-5 single spaced pages that includes key plots points and outcomes. It is NOT required.

Additional Information: Any additional information you think will be helpful to include in the blurb.
