    A 10/10,000/10

    It takes ten years and ten-thousand hours to score this perfect 10 eBook. As an engineer and writer, I cried all the way through the technical part on using painful experience to drive your writing. It brought a flood of words that I need for my book. It turned the attention away from me and onto my readers. Thank you Mary for sharing.

    The Best Book for Anyone Wanting to Learn More About Becoming an Author

    This book is worth so much more then what you are paying. It helps writers in all levels of expertise to understand the writing and publishing world by her experiences, schooling and skills. Instructing the reader in all areas of his or her writing skills to help them to sharpen their abilities and finally obtaining the possibility of being a published author. This is my second book of Mary's and both books have become invaluable to me as I am new entering into this world of literature. We owe Mary a huge gratitude for caring about us enough to share all this wealth of information that has taken her so many years of accomplishments to achieve. Thank-you Mary, for all the hard work you have done and your dedication to all of us want-to-be authors.

    Are you a Writer wanting to be published? Then you NEED this book!

    Do you write? Do you ever expect to be published? Then you must get this book. I read through this thing and learned so much that I'm planning on re-reading over and over. There is so much in this eBook! This gave me a boost of encouragement as well. Now - if only I could figure out how to use my highlighter on the iPad or place sticky notes all over the pages I usually do in my reference books!

    Why are you still reading this.....get going and get this downloaded for yourself!!!

    Secrets?

    There were really no "secrets" divulged in this book. And for a book that suggests good writing is one, there were several errors that jarred me as I read it.
