Editorial Reviews

Sidney Sheldon
As I read, each sentence compelled me to read the next, and before long I was completely lost in your wonderful book.
Beverly Bush Smith
Who would believe a how-to book that’s a page turner? Maralys Wills pulls it off with a compelling narrative arc that propels a wealth of do-able info for the reader-writer. Building the romantic scene, developing characters, writing the query letter, marketing and more—it’s all here in wisdom gleaned from years of writing triumph, and, most important, failure. It’s a realistic book, an honest book that allows readers to learn from each step and misstep, each revision
Jerry D. Simmons
This is a must read for every writer — both informative and entertaining.
