Writen in a friendly style, this booklet holds a wealth of information. Information is freely shared and the author provides a ton of personal examples to learn from. Not only did I learn multiple books worth of info, but I finished the booklet feeling encoraged and ready to keep trying. There's also quite a lengthy list of free and helpful websites at the end. You have nothing to loose by reading this (free) booklet so go on and download it!

While not a bad read, the author relies too much on her direct experiences as being indicative of larger truths in the publishing world. "Being famous" or "known" certainly aids one to be published, but the sheer volume of books being published each year alone shows that some of the premises provided in this pamphlet are subjective generalities, rather than objective truths. But I do agree - it's ridiculous that "Tinkerbell" Hilton has a book out...

In a New Hampshire condo was a girl named Avery Zanes on her PC. The snow welcomingly twirled to the ground outside. "We're leaving, Avery!" Called mom. Avery grumbled and switched off the computer. The car sputtered gas into the cold air as the girl hurried out the front door. She pried open the door to the van and seated herself in the ferthest seat from her parents. The Zanes' were going to A Ski Center in Augusta to spend the winter. The van pulled out of the garage and turned onto the road. *** Avery put on her ski goggles as the snow danced around her. She slid down the hill graciously with great speed. Clouds formed overhead. "Hun, we'll be in the lodge for a bit." Dad shouted. Avery nodded and continued sliding downhill. But soon, the snow was falling vigorously, surrounding Avery. Before she knew it, the eleven-year-old girl was buried alive. *** Avery woke up dazed. Her soaked clothes was replaced with a sweater and ski pants. Her old clothes was folded neatly besides her on a rock. Her bare hands covered with mittens, she stared at the blazing fire. On a log sat a lone boy. "Y...you saved me?" The boy shook his head. "All I did was carry you here. Mystic did all the work." He pointed towards a large, golden Saint Bernard dog. The boy handed Avery a cup of hot cocoa. "I'm Terrence. What's your name?" He smiled. "A...Avery." the cold girl replied. "Nice name. You should stay here for a little while." Terrence led Avery to a green Coleman tent. She crawled inside as Terrence laid on a log. *** Avery woke to the scent of berries and venison. She looked besides her to find a paper plate with just what she smelled. She scarfed it down with a handcarved fork. She made her way out the tent to find Terrence starting a fire. Mystic ran to the girl and licked her face. Avery smiled and handed the dog a bone from the breakfast meat. "Hey Terrence." She said. Terrence looked up with a smile. "I made a small table---what do you think?" He pointed to a large tree stump covered with a big stone slab surrounded by two other stumps, about the size of the lower part of a chair. Avery nodded and said it seemed nice. She decided to take a walk with the dog. She strolled down the trail to the opening. She glanced at the lodge. But there was no lodge. Only debris and stones. Shocked, Avery ran to the ruins. The roof caved in for sure. She got on her knees. There lay a hand sticking out of the debris. A cold hand with her mother's ring. The Bernard whined and pointed his nose at the familiar body of Avery's father. ***** Next Part on Write Good Or Die Res 1.

This book is great for people new at the whole publishing process! I am only a kid . I didnt have hope with finding a publisher but thanks to lisa sanders now i do!!!! This book was informative, enthusiastic, and very well written. I also enjoyed the fact that this author wrote from expierence. I learned that even if all fails you should still have faith in yourself and hope for the best because life can always change.
