Photographic art entered her life in 2007, and within two years Villanueva was dubbed the Grandma Moses of the American Southwest by her artistic peers, and is represented in several online and walk-in art galleries across the nation.

Critically acclaimed in the June 19, 2008 issue of the Rio Grande Sun:

"Villanueva is one of those rare individuals who uses new technology to take a digital image to a new and exciting level. With some photographers this digitizing and manipulation are evident and stumbling, not so with Villanueva's work, which is sophisticated and well thought out. She has a knack for transferring her impression of a scene to the viewer that is remarkable and almost magical."

As Aggie states; The Fairy Trail is real, folks. Welcome To My Path."

`There is more to writing than putting many words to paper and more to rewriting than rearranging those words. Dreaming about writing won't get you anywhere, and writing a thousand words a day won't help unless you know what to do with those words.'

I don't write novels but do occasionally write short articles pertaining to a dish I've just created or some other food related topic. So when Aggie Villanueva requested that I review her book The Rewritten Word, I had my doubts about the information pertaining to a cookbook writer like myself. I was wrong.

The Rewritten Word is broken into five lessons with the first four pertaining to all writings. Her 1st lesson `Organization' talks about "cutting to the chase" by eliminating rambling and teaches the writer to put their words in order of importance. In lesson 2 you will learn how to cut unnecessary words to create a better flow. I'm sure we are all guilty of over wording not just our writings but even our conversations. Lesson 3 talks about passive phrases giving examples in "past tense vs. present." I've often noticed, through my reading as well as listening to speakers, the use of the word "I". This overuse tends to make me feel that the person speaking or writing thinks entirely too much of themselves. Lesson 4 stresses the use of the right words. Aggie shares the importance of using a thesaurus when choosing words. I find this to be of value to me when choosing a name for a new recipe. It needs to be simple and understandable but catchy at the same time. And Lesson 5 brings all lessons together in the writing of fiction and setting moods.

Rewritten Word is only 35 pages (electronic version, 60 pages in Amazon Paperback, 75 pages at Lulu) long but those 35 pages are packed full of useful information that all writers, I feel sure, will find useful.

Format: Paperback
Aggie delivers a power-packed small booklet for authors, literary professionals, and even editors to review for their writing or works they are editing. She explains the importance of rewriting for authors, even if you don't understand how to do it. There are several examples on rewriting by omitting adverbs with endings of 'ly', verboten, first person, past/present/future tenses, and much more. She quotes from "Elements of Style" with use of numerals, anything 10 and up, can write as number instead of words. However, there are other versions, believe it's the Chicago Manual of Style or Kate Turbian Manual of Style (written by a librarian) that states usually 100 and up. In most cases, it is the choice of author/publisher and sometimes the editor. Most businesses would use numbers instead of numbers, especially in reference of statistical information or insight.

This is highly recommended for authors. Editors can keep a copy on hand too. This refreshes my memory when I am doing both. She also offers references (books and other sources for recommendation).

I'll review some of these sources in the near future since I always want to enhance my craft as a writer/editor and literary consultant. I hope to get this author on my future radio shows: Secrets of Success (Adrienna Turner Show) or Dream 4 More Radio (literary moments to discuss on "rewriting").

The Rewritten Word is a brilliant little book! Villanueva tackles the "how-to" subject of writing with concise examples, lessons and exercises designed to help both the novice and established author. The information can be applied to fiction and nonfiction, as well as full length books, articles and essays.

This is not a dry read or boring guide. Villanueva entertains while she goes about demonstrating her points. A must for anyone looking to make his or her writing more dynamic.

Aggie Villanueva writes this book with one sole purpose in mind, get your butt into writing gear! I think after reading this book and with some help from friends, have gotten into the writing itch yet again. So thank you to Aggie and all! This book goes back to the basic folks so be prepared on this magical writing journey you are about to embark in. Ready? Set? Let's go! I am the type of person that needs to be shoved into the right direction and Villanueva's book does not disappoint. I would have to recommend this to all fellow writers when your stuck in a rut and can't get out of it. Oh yes, I am talking about the dreaded writers block. I think this book is also a great reference book to go back to, it will remind writers as to why we do what we do. It's about the ideas, thoughts, and our passion down on paper. It's about going back to the drawing board and to work with what we have. Go pick up this book, my plot bunnies thank Aggie!

Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a book about writing, this isn't the thing for you. If, however, you are looking for a book dedicated to the art of rewriting, then you need to swipe this up right away. Bestselling novelist Aggie Villanueva takes you through five separate lessons that will show you how to rewrite with clarity. By numerous examples she'll teach you how to find the right words that will add punch to your art, no matter the genre.

I enjoy rewriting, but even writers who would rather type, "The End", and not change a thing will be drawn in by Aggie's passion for whittling away the clutter that buries the art of their words. She also provides helpful information on working with editors. The final pages include a list of additional resources.

If you're a writer, you need this book!
