When I started writing books, I often wished I could ask authors for their best advice. This book fulfilled those dreams. I only wish I had this book sooner.
The formatting of this book made it not only easy to read, but also a quick read. I was able to read and re-read the authors whose advice I found helpful, and I could quickly move on if an author had advice that wasn’t helpful.
The advice itself was great. Some of it was more helpful than other parts. Some of the advice made me smile, some made me think, and some drew me closer to God. No matter what stage of writing you are in, this book has advice and encouragement that is relevant to you.
One of the things that sets this book apart from many other books is that it gives advice from editors, agents, and other people in the publishing industry in addition to that from authors.
I highly recommend that every author get a copy of this book. I would also like to thank C. J. Darlington for putting this together.
