2.0 out of 5 stars Not so brilliant March 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My best advice is pass on this one. There are many more out there to close from. In fact, take a course at a community college, join a writers' group and just get writing. Ask for criticism from friends, just not your best friend!

This is the second book I've read from the series and I am absolutely in love with it. They make the advice and tips easy enough to understand and funny/informative enough to remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh ideas in a easy to digest layout March 7, 2013
These fresh ideas have been a great help with my writing. I absolutely love the layout of his easy to read and reference. Even the side quotes on the page by well-known authors are inspiring. Writing Bestselling Children's Books - 52 Ideas by this author is another must have if you are trying to write that type of book.

My daughter is an aspiring writer and also loves Alexander Gordon Smith. This is the perfect Christmas gift for her and I'm sure she will love it. (I also love Smith, so I'm sure that I'll love it too. even though I bought it for her!!)
