I just got back from a trip and had a lot of email waiting here. many of them were about the synopsises if there is such a word. I'm not good at writing them at all. I usually copy the long description which is usually on the inside of the book cover. As for the short one I find that you can't say much to the reader in 200 words that could give them much of an idea of the book. I never read any of the bookshare books so I don't know how the format is, but it would seem to me that the longer one would be what the prospective reader would want to see
They should certainly have one or the other so they can know whether they are interested in the book before they commit themselves.
Also I wonder why in that long list of topics they don't have one that just simply says fiction. Most of the ones that I read and send on are fiction.
Oh well, it's a lot of fun and I like doing it.
