Editorial Reviews

Review

"What a wonderful resource for writers at any stage of their career! I wish I had this book when I first started writing. You have pulled together information from the best sources ... and presented them all in one place. [...] You did a great job of explaining 'Show, don't tell.' That's so difficult for new writers to grasp. In fact, you've done a great job of everything. I can't think of anything important that you haven't addressed succinctly and clearly. [...] This should be on the booklist for Master's Programs in Writing for Publication. [...] You must be a wonderful editor to be able to write such a readable, but comprehensive book."

~ Judge, Writer's Digest Self-Published e-Book Awards


"Jodie Renner's FIRE UP YOUR FICTION is ahandy manual for writers looking to make the biggest impact with their craft. Rennershows and tells. [...]
"FIRE UP YOUR FICTION is the Strunk andWhite for writers who want to be not just mere storytellers but masterstory-compellers."
~ Lucy Wang, IndieReader
