Does anyone know if the “brief synopsis in the body of the email” refers to the short blurb in one’s query letter, or to a regular synopsis with major plot points and the ending, to follow pasted in? Since they request the sample chapters as attachments, it seems like they would want a regular synopsis as an attachment also.

Submitted to #PeerPitch and made it to the long list and then the short list. Sharon was the main vote both times. Then I ranked #4 in the entire contest and Sharon asked to see the full MS. I was working with a mentor at the time so I couldn't send it.

Full MS sent 4/25
Confirmed moments later

Offer of Rep: 3/13
Her offer email went to my SPAM. She re-sent the email on 3/21, and I accepted on 4/12 (I had ten fulls out and other offers to go through).
I've had success thus far with a small press, and I'm excited to see if we can take my career to the next level!
