However, the number of typos and outright misspellings in this book is shocking. "Of curse" for "Of course", "tomb" when he means "tome", and regarding the thoughtful rejection letter, "prize this and target this editor you're your next book..." And countless others.
An author who wants to be taken seriously on this topic should follow his own advice.
Dead On Writing is excellent for anyone just starting, it really forces an aspiring writer or novelist to see what others will look for when it is time to publish- it also helps posture an aspiring writer, providing a blue print for what should be in a good piece of work.
Robert W. Walkers book Dead On Writing is also great for seasoned authors like myself wanting to re-inspire and learn a few things we did not know. I consider his book as good as a four hour college course in creative writing and then some. His book is interesting, at times comical, educational and a page turner even if I aspired to write nothing.
My vote is for the poor inner city kid who earned a full scholarship to Northwestern University, went on to write 40 novels and be a professor of English and Literature which is Robert W. Walker. Thanks for a .99 cent book worth a few hundred dollars of lessons! ~Deborah Dolen Author
That being said the first thing we have to talk about is p rice, see I've a good bit of paper back and hard back books I paid well over their worth for just sitting around my house that I paid way to much for and a lot of it was just not that great of advice, but this Ebook not only comes at an amazing price but its also given me tips and insights I never thought possible.
Another great thing I really really loved about this was the fact each secontion was handled with such great care, it wasn't rushed. This isn't a book that was made with just enough tips and advice to be a writing guid book. No this was made to really show and help some one progress..
This book has taught me so much its given me such insights in to what I've done wrong before when I've tried to write, and the way the book helps you get in to the mind set and persona of your charecter is just amazing.
Will this book improve my grammer skills no, not as much as I'd like it to and really thats the only bad thing I have to say about this book but this book wasn't designed to help with that, it was made and desgined to help aspiring authors (writers) improve on their stories or build on a charecter.
And with that in mind this book does just what its suppoused to, and thats help you feel and understand your story on a much deeper level it really gets you in to the mind frame of what you're doing.
The details given in this book from the Author just show how much He's wanting to help others get their dreams up and rolling, thats something I have to say a lot of Authors lose after they've been published so much and have so much money but with this book you can really tell that isn't what the author wants he just really giving great advice to aspiring and indepent writes and thats something I'll always be thankful for
If you where a fan like I am I highly recomend you pick up other works by this author as their all just as good. I'd for sure recament you pick up:
Psychology 101 for Writers & Their Characters advice from a pro
Story Web Structure - Crafting the Focused Story (One I can asure you I'll be picking up soon)
