Could anyone tell me whether or not agents prefer to have a word count and genre in one's synopsis? Say, for a one- or two-page? Thanks.

I've always seen it set up like:

Title
By Jane Doe
Genre, Word Count

As for preference, I don't know. I've never seen any agents mention it. You could probably skip genre and word count if you needed the extra lines, as they'll be in the query, but you'll want to keep title and name.

Cool, that's what I've been doing. Thanks.
