Format: Paperback
Anne Orchard's, BE AN AUTHOR, addresses what it would be like to be an author- to fulfill that dream so many of us have. This is not a book to learn how to write or market a book. There are plenty of those out there. BE AN AUTHOR asks all those questions budding writers have, but don't know who to ask. It certainly fills a unique niche. I wish I had come upon it years ago when I first thought about writing.

Throughout the book, four authors are interviewed about their varying experiences with writing and publishing. It's an easy, engaging format that helps the new or would be author imagine what the process might be like for them. Anne Orchard also shares her experience of writing and publishing her first book. Some of the topics covered include setting goals, the publishing world of today, the personal process of writing, self- fulfillment through writing, and how writing careers evolve over time. The author also packs the book with inspiring quotes.

For those considering writing a book, or for those who have already begun, this is a concise guide to encourage your personal journey to becoming an author. A nice addition to any writer's shelf.

Yes, I have a reputation for playing the BAD COP when it comes to being a self-proclaimed member of the Amazon Book Police. I don't like giving bad reviews, but I grew up around umpires so I calls em likes I sees em! You will not get a bad review from me if you exercise integrity and common sense. A three page book on the History of the Universe priced at $8.99 is probably going to get a very bad review. A fourteen page book on MAKING MILLIONS AS A WRITER that has poor formatting and even poorer grammar or broken English is a quick road to one star hell in my book. (Literary pun intended)

This book, BE AN AUTHOR, delivers on the title promise. The reader will find many fascinating tidbits of useful information. It defines a clear and unquestionable path to becoming a writer. I didn't find any stuffed text or copied passages. The book is filled with meaningful quotes and pointers, not useless filler material. I like finding gems like this. It restores my confidence in the writers.

Thank you, Anne Orchard, for giving me the opportunity to enjoy a worthwhile read and to place a five-star review on AMAZON. I trust that many will find your book helpful and worthy of purchase.
Thank you for your integrity and dedication to publishing GOOD and HELPFUL books of merit, rather than unmitigated rubbish. I hope to see more works from you in the near future.
