More About the Author

FROM: My Desk in Austin TX.

Hello my name is Victoria Lane and I currently reside in Austin Texas. My goal is to write books on subjects that I have a deep understanding of and am truly passionate about. I began writing in college as a hobby and kept detailed journals about my life. With the advent of self publishing I started to turn my hobby into a career and thanks to all those that have bought my books I am now proud to call my self a full time writer!

In my books you will find a healthy dose of entertainment mixed with education. I believe people learn better when they aren't bored to tears. Therefore, I try to inject humor and witty anecdotes into my books to keep things interesting.

I am a huge animal lover and our family currently has three dogs and if my husband would let me I might have more :)

I couldn't do all this without your support! My passion is to serve you and write books that will provide you with maximum value and insight. Please scroll down to see if any of my books would interest you.

Your Friend,

Victoria Lane

I can be brutal if an e-book is bad; I'll just disclose that right up front. This is not terrible, but not stellar either.

First off, the author swears in the book. This is a DIY book; there is just no reason to throw OMG into the mix. Seriously- that is so unprofessional. There are also typos and other minor errors that might only bug an editor like myself.

As far as the content, the instructions are written moderately well. There are some missing details and some of the soapmaking process isn't covered as clearly as I would prefer. However, the process is correct, there are no glaring errors there, and safety considerations are explained correctly.

There is a small collection of recipes that are, amazingly, mostly correct. (Almost all small, self-published soap books have recipes that are not tested, have incorrect proportions and are dangerous, so this fact earned this book the 4th star, despite its other weaknesses.) The recipes are super-fatted quite high, however, so you'll probably want to double check and adjust to your preferences in a reliable lye calculator. Also, the last two recipes in the book include no ingredient amounts at all, making them unusable. Sloppy and unfortunate.

I would really like to give this book 2.5 stars, but that's not an option, so I erred on the side of generosity. It's not bad, there is usable information, and the recipes aren't dangerous. However, slogging through errors, typos, swearing and general sloppiness really kills the flow when you're trying to learn something new. If it's free, it's worth picking up. If you are going to pay anyway, go with Smart Soapmaking. It's accurate, well written and only .99.

Well it certainly is a quick start guide! It glosses over so many areas that's it more of a quick refresher course for experienced soapers. There's nowhere near enough detail or in some cases even wrong information. For example, insulating your cold process soap to cure will NOT cause it to crack!

Two of the five recipes don't include ingredient quantities. The table of colourants is completely missing. Although there is a very brief mention of swirling Colours, there are no photographs - or were these left out of ebook version too.

Personally I'd send this book to an editor for a very thorough overall!

The book is difficult to read because of sentence structure. I found myself having to re-read sentences multiple times to try and understand the information the author was trying to convey. I'm not the greatest reader, so I thought it might just be me, but as I read further the experience of frustration just continued to grow until I just gave up. If you are looking for a book to learn about making soap, this might not be the one for you. The information is there, it's just hard to extract.

This book excited me to start soap making and was very informative. The instructions were thorough, well written, and easy to understand. But when I got to the recipes 1/2 of them were missing the measurements rendering them useless and disappointing.

This is most likely the worst purchase I have made on Amazon. This so called book, that says it has 30 pages, has 12 pages dealing with soap making and 2 pages of fluff for a total of a 14 page pamphlet. The miss spelled words are too numerous to put down here and the information is erroneous at best. The last two recipes of the five total, don't even list the amount of the ingredients to use. What a waste of money. Amazon should be embarrassed to be taken like this, I know I am.

This is a fun little book, with lots of good information and tips to create your own soap. Some thoughts:

▲ Early in the book, the author includes a list of safety equipment such as chemical resistant goggles, appropriate clothing, and appropriate shoes. She also includes definition of some types of key oils and butters-- for example castor oil, coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil and many others.

▲ In the section called the "Soap making process," the author lists all the steps in the process:

Step 1: Preparation
Step 2: Accurate measurement of the products such as light liquids oils and butters
Step 3: Heating oils and butters over the stove stove top
Step 4: Careful--some of this stuff is dangerous; you have to be extremely careful with this step
Step 5: Blend the lye liquid with the oil or butter
Step 6: This what the author calls the real excitement stage in this part you pour yourself into the mold process
Step 7: You place your soap mold in the refrigerator
Step 8: This what the author calls unmolding your soap
Step 9: This when you cut the soap into bars well
Step 10: Curing
Step 11: This was a little confusing to me because the author says its just a big pat on the back.
Step 12: Just a summary (I think)

▲ In the section called "Basic Soap Recipes," the author provides quite a few different recipes. There's one called "lush luscious lavish olive soap bar." There's another one called "shea butter soap," one called "gentle and goat milk soap" (that one sounds exciting) and a real good one called "wild orange ultimate energizing soap." Remember--don't eat it!
