An Essential Guide Every Writer Must Have,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fire up Your Fiction: An Editor's Guide to Writing Compelling Stories (Kindle Edition)
Fire Up Your Fiction is a book every fiction writer needs to have. I've read dozens of writing craft books, and this one is a gem. Jodie Renner addresses all the crucial issues and components in a novel and shows with great right-and-wrong examples how to trim and tighten your writing. As a professional copyeditor she brings years of expertise to the fore and examines both the big-picture issues involved in cutting or revising scenes as well as the many micro issues such as clunky dialog and overuse of adverbs and adjectives. As a professional novelist, copyeditor, and writing coach, I can honestly say this comprehensive book covers everything a writer at any level needs to make a novel sizzle.

Thank you for this extensive review. There are an overwelming number of writer's guides on the market, so I appreciate your assistance in helping us render down the fat to get to the more informative meat.
