Giving away the ending

One recurring error that irritates publishers and agents beyond belief is the synopsis which promises wonderful things but finishes with something like:

'If you want to know what happens next, you'll have to read the book!!!!'

Sadly, they won't. They'll probably just heave a sigh and send your manuscript back in the next available post. Your synopsis is your sales pitch and should contain all your manuscript's strongest points, including details of a satisfactory ending.
