RIVET YOUR READERS WITH DEEP POINT OF VIEW is a neat, handy resource tool I'll refer to as I write. At first, I was disappointed when I opened it because it was so small, but it's 59 pages of very useful instruction, and I'm glad I found it. In fact, I like it because it's small and makes an easy to use resource. There are eight easy to read and understand chapters. The last one focuses on first person DPOV. BJ ripped the package open. A sigh escaped her lips. Such a small book. How can it help me? She flipped through the eight chapters. The last one on DPOV hooked her. She read it first. She thumbed through three more before placing it on the table. I'm glad I didn't miss this one. It'll make a great resource tool for writing.

Have trouble getting 'into your characters head?' This book nails it... This book was a quick, worthwhile read with easy-to-understand examples to pick apart and quickly improve your writing without a lot of fluff. After reading this, I was immediately able to hone in on some of those little buggy issues when you edit your own work and it's not quite right, but you can't figure out why. Why only four stars instead of five? The content was five, but this book was really short. The author used -only- her own writing as examples. The examples were, for the most part, really good, but I would have rated it a five if it had also included examples from classic literature. If your critique partners tell you 'I just couldn't get into your characters head,' then this is most definitely the book for you!

This is an amazing little book. Our writers' critique group is using it to improve our writing. Jill's approach is one that makes me feel like I am in a class receiving hands-on instruction from a gifted professor. Thanks to Jill for her book. It is making my writing so much better as I learn to use deep point of view in place of shallow POV.

This book is short, but extremely useful. I do best with a step by step instruction (rather than dissecting text to understand it) on how to do something, and this was exactly what I needed. On the downside, revising my novel has just gotten this much harder because I can see how much I'm doing poorly!

For only sixty-two pages, Nelson has managed to pack this book with understandable instruction and helpful examples. Every writer should read this book.

I have just started this book. All I can say is 'finally' a book on Deep Point of View! I would recommend getting this book in paperback. This is a heavy duty reference tool which will do you little good unless you are prepared to read it a dozen times. Why you ask? Because this is the most cutting edge tool of the modern fiction and fantasy writer. Only 63 pages long but a lifetime value. 5 Stars
