Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Ms. Llewellyn's how-to book offers advice on how to get into print, with advice for every aspect of the journey from sitting one's butt in the chair and getting that novel written, to tips on revision, and query letter writing, as well as where to look to find the most respected national writing groups (like the Romance Writers of America, or the Mystery Writers of America), to suggestions how to determine your genre, to the ever-pesky "mistakes" committed by novice writers and how to spot and avoid them, to other more intermediate subjects such as how to interpret a rejection letter--or a revision letter--and what it all means.

Sure there are a lot of writers' guides to choose from, but Kimberly's has the bonus that the author has worked on both sides of the writing front lines, in publishing houses and as a published author herself. Her perspective may help you, if you're just sticking your toes in the writing pond.
