To Be Or Not To Be First Person
The first person paranormal romance I’m writing and about to complete (again...cut/save ending I didn’t like), I wrote the synopsis two ways. One in present tense third person. The other in present tense first person. I believe the present tense first person is the strongest of the two, but I recently read in an agent’s blog (can’t remember whose), the synopsis should still be in present tense third person, even if the manuscript is in first person. I know it’s only one person’s opinion, but it threw me for a loop. Decisions, decisions.
