Editorial Reviews

Review

"Overall, the guide gives a realistic look into what is required to be a writer. It outlines the important steps required to succeed and includes meaningful examples. This is by far the best book I have picked up to help me kick start my writing!"

"There are plenty of writing guides available for writers in every stage of their careers. Simon Rose's Children's Writer's Guide is definitely one of those how-to guides suited for any age writer. This book is smart. It is practical and helpful. It has so much information, it should be 4 books!"

"Simon Rose provides any aspiring children's writer with a complete resource book. It is filled with excellent information and some great examples."
 
"Loved "The Children's Writer's Guide". What an awesome tool for writers starting out. Great ideas, tools, and guidance all in one book!"

"I am starting to have several resources for writing children's books and this is definitely getting to be one of my favorites to go back to."

"Thoroughly enjoyed this book... There is an implied message of confidence in this book that is very reassuring to a beginner writer. Highly recommend it."

"Writing for children is a marathon, not a sprint. Great quote from the book that is oh so true! The Children's Writer's Guide is written with every writer in mind. It won't matter if you are beginning your career or if you have some years under your belt. Chapters will take you through the writing process and beyond. Great information and ideas throughout."
