"I see. I've never heard of an agent wanting a summary. I mean, wouldn't the query letter and synopsis give way to a summary? I've looked into at least a hundred lit agents (all YA focused ones, though) and none of them have ever asked…"

Kimberly Trotter replied to the discussion 'How Do you Feel About Tag Lines? Must we have one?!' in the group Novelists (Struggling or Not)
"I think that those who don't read the back cover blurb might read the one liner -- but the thing that would attract them the most to the book would be the cover. If you can think of a great one liner, I'm sure that would help, too.…"

Welcome to the novelist group, Kimberly. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.
