Wow. The subtitle to Donna Goodman's book is "The Complete How-to Book for Christian Writers." Words like "complete" often make me shake my head--but after purchasing "A Step in the Write Direction,"I can attest that this book is indeed a complete guide. I can say without reservation, "If you can only buy one book about writing for the Christian market, this is the book."

"A Step in the Write Direction" is a compilation based on Goodman's many years of teaching, mentoring, and writing for publication. She is a mentor and a friend to writers at all skill levels. I've learned new things and refreshed my memory on many other aspects of writing for publication. I recommend this book for the beginner as well as the intermediate and seasoned writer--it's almost an encyclopedia covering the different genres, marketing, editing, challenges of being a writer, and an appendix that I've already filled with "post-it flags." This book is a reference that I will use regularly. Vie Herlocker

When I read a how-to book, I like to receive instruction from people who intimately know the subject of their instruction. A STEP IN THE WRITE DIRECTION is written with an authoritative voice because Donna Goodrich has faithfully practiced the craft of writing for years.

Whether you are starting out in the Christian publishing field or just looking for new direction and opportunities for your writing, you can find inspiration and insight in the pages of this book. I like the comprehensive nature of this book with details about how to set up a home office or the specifics about writing fiction or nonfiction. I recommend you get this book and profit from this rich source of information.

I met Donna over twelve years ago when she was the speaker at a writer's conference. I thank God for her mentoring, proofreading help, encouragement and speaking to the "potential in me". She can't personally help every writer but every writer can be helped by having this complete resource book on their desk. From the user friendly Contents pages through the Frequently Asked Questions, Advise for a Beginnng Writer and the many Appendix pages, you will find a life time of research and information. Donna truly has reached out to multitudes of writers with her knowledge, experience and mentoring through this "must have" book. Thank you Donna, I wish that I had this book twenty years ago!

By Kitty Chappell on August 22, 2013
Format: Paperback
Holding in my hands for the first time Donna Goodrich's comprehensive book on writing, A Step in the Write Direction: The Complete How-to Guide for Christian Writers, was a two-fold blessing for me. Not only did it clarify some issues on writing for me, but it also provided the perfect resource tool that I could recommend with complete confidence. As a published author of several books and numerous articles, I quite often am asked the question, "How do I get published?" or "I've never written very much but I've always wanted to--how do I even start?" Thank God for Donna's book! I wholeheartedly recommend it to every writer and all wanna-be authors for I know it will answer their questions and also motivate them. - Kitty Chappell is an award winning author and international speaker whose true-life-story book, Soaring above the Ashes on the Wings of Forgiveness, is being made into a feature film.

Donna Goodrich has written a comprehensive book for Christian Writers. In writing my memoir, I keep Donna's book close at hand as a reference book for any and all questions that come to mind as I write. A Step in the Write Direction is helpful for both the seasoned writer and beginner. A "must buy" for all those who are serious about writing and getting it right!
