So YA agent John Cusick from S©ott Treimel NY (can check out his tweets here and an interview with him here), wants you to woo him with not a one page synopsis, but a THREE SENTENCE synopsis that covers the set-up, story and ending (you don't have to give away a twist/ending - but a taste of it to spark interest).
Example to help you get your head around the concept of a micro synopsis without spoilers (I'm not entering the competition, but I am querying this MS, which John has already seen anyway):
Eighteen-year-old heart transplant recipient Mishca Richardson is plagued by terrible nightmares after her operation and a burning desire to find her birth parents, something that has never bothered her before. She ignores her dreams, as well as the new found speed and strength that have come with her new heart, and tries to focus on love with fellow adoptee Ryder. But when she meets her university lecture, Collin Reed, and falls in love with him the moment she sees him, it begins a chain of events that will lead her to the truth about her past and her new heart.
You also need to include (post your entries in the comments):
Promo link (blog post preferred, but if you don't blog you can tweet it or pop it on FB/Google+)
Age Group (open to MG, 8 - 12, & YA, 13 - 18, only)
The manuscript must be complete and ready for querying. John is open to nearly any genre, but says High Fantasy (dragons, dwarfs and elves) and Vampires are a hard sell at the moment, so you probably won't get a request if you enter a MS in one of those areas.
There's no limit on the number of entries (yes you can enter multiple times if you have more than one MS), but you MUST be a follower of the blog.
The all important prizes! The winner will get a full MS request and two runners up will get a request for the first 30 pages of their MS.
Remember this is NOT a pitch contest, so don't just condense your query. The contest will be open until midnight 11 August. So start shrinking your synopsis!
