    A very engaging and personable book about writing fiction and being an author. I had the privilege of meeting and spending a couple of hours with Tom Morrisey a few years ago at the Blue Ridge Writers Retreat. This book is just like that conversation. He knows his stuff and writes like he's talking with you over a cup of coffee. Lots of helpful advice about writing and publishing, especially for newer writers. His counsel and wisdom are so valuable and helpful.
