This is the third writing book i've read by this author. He never disappoints. I ended up with four pages of notes of information and items and sites for further review. The information on writing disciplines and book publishing was excellent. A must read for every serious writer.

I love everything James Scott Bell does, and this is no exception. Just a great look into how he became a writer and it makes me believe I can too. I highly recommend it!

A wonderful resource in this new age of digital publishing. While a lot of it may seem like common sense, Bell puts it in a readable fashion so that you feel like, at the start of the book, you're getting a pep talk, then in the latter half very sound and specific advice. For a writer, it's definitely worth it to have this at your disposal.
