[bksvol-discuss] Re: Publisher Quality Books needing synopses

I don't mind, really. When I started looking up the
books the other nght most of them were simple to write
a one- or two-line synopsis for. The Garth Nix books'
summaries were so detailed, and other than writing
that they were horror/fantasy/mystery i didn't know
what to do. Anyway, there were so many PQ books that
night and I started so late I gave up. smile. Most
days, though, there aren't any. The other thing I can
do, though, is not include those PQ books on the list
I send. Maybe that would be better. Then people
wouldn't get frustrated.

I think after lunch I'll send out a survey to tose wo
receive the lists. smile
