Top Customer Reviews
While we found the book's content useful, although a little bit repetitious in parts, and it more or less delivered on its promise, we were somewhat surprised by the large number of typos and errors - especially in a book on writing, and especially in such a short book.
Sadly, of late, we've come across a number of people who are teaching others how to write and publish books for Kindle, and they almost all chant the same mantra - don't worry about spelling and grammar, just put your book out there.
Ultimately, we believe this is going to give self-publishing a bad name (if it doesn't already have one), and may even lead Amazon to tighten up its submission policies, and while we accept that not everybody has the resources of a major publishing house at their disposal, we think authors owe it to their readers to at least subject their books to a reasonable level of proofreading first.
Our novel, which is approximately 112,000 words long, was proofread by ourselves, and by a couple of friends, and we'd be surprised if there are anything like the number of errors in that book as there are in the book being reviewed here. It's really not that hard to do, and while it may take some additional time, we believe that presentation is important.
Having said that, this book is easily worth the $0.99 being asked, it's an easy and quick read, and we will probably try a couple of Rick Frazier's other books too.
We would have given it 4 stars, but had to knock one star off for the bad English.Read more ›
I wouldn't have given it as many stars if it weren't for the ultra-low price. I did pick up one or two new tidbits, which made it worth the 99 cents.
The spelling mistakes were certainly disheartening though. This is a book about writing, and there were numerous spelling/grammatical errors. I guess I have to go back to the 99 cent price again... not much budget room for editing there I guess!
Going through the writing process helped me understand the book much better than going through it without writing first. I know my next stories will be better than the first because of this specific information.
Thanks for sharing the good information. Joe Latino
