My book, Assignment 9, weaves together two narratives that take place in completely different timeframes. When writing a synopsis, should I be following the chronology of the book, or summarize each of the plot threads on its own? I've tried doing it both ways, and neither really works for me. Is there a standard way to do this or not? I'm afraid that by following the book's pattern, the whole thing sounds jumbled and insane, but doing it the other way doesn't illustrate the way the book flows together.
Should I maybe only go into detail with one plot and just use a few lines to explain that there is a framing story that weaves between it?
Help! Does anyone know the answer to this knotty problem?
