Book Synopsis Should be Written in Present Tense

by Sarayu
(India)

I would prefer to write a synopsis in first person of a novel written in first person, however, the regular industry format is third person, and not first person as your article points out. Am I wrong here?

ANSWER:

The article is correct that a book synopsis should be written in the present tense. It does not matter if your book is written in the present or past tense, the book synopsis should be written in the present tense. To view several sample synopses visit this site
