Classifying your genre will be one of the first things you do. However, this may not be as simple as it sounds. Many novels, scripts and other works of art will combine elements of more than one genre within the story that is told.
You've finished your manuscript and spent even more time editing. Finally, it is at a standard you are now confident to present. Now you are preparing to query and you are likely to need a synopsis. How do you summarize 80k words to one page?
Often when works of fiction are discussed, word and/or page count comes up. When you see books on a shelf, one of the first things you’ll notice, apart from the author’s name and book title on the spine, is how thick or thin they are compared to each other.
