"Although this is a small book, it is packed full of information. While it may be a bit beyond the writer who is tipping his/her toe in the water for the first time, the book has many valuable hints and suggestions. Well worth the investment for anyone truly interested in understanding the path one follows to write fiction -- not only for him/herself, but for those who will be reading." - Judith Reveal, New York Journal of Books
