The BOOK ODYSSEY continues

I heard from the gentleman in LA, a fellow attorney, and he gave me some input on how to better write my summary. 

If you have never tried, it might well amaze you how hard it is to take 250 pages and cram them onto 4 without leaving important nuggets out. Worse, you know the story so well you dream about it, but that also makes you assume things.  In other words, you leave out basic information because it seems clear to you. 

I should have worked more on the summary and responded slower. I just got excited. 

However, this patient man has given me a chance to redo it. 

I hope he may shop it to literary agents again? Will this be a one time assist? I will let you know.
