This book has all the advice, techniques, and motivation you need to get started on writing. I can be independent to a fault, so I have made it a point in the past to stay away from how-to books, but "How to Write Your First Book" has me reconsidering and ready to learn more. The author is approachable, honest, and straightforward in her presentation and makes her book both easy to read and easy to reference for later use. She gives practical advice in areas I never even considered, such as using a pen name, finding your target audience, and scoping out the competition. Best of all, it's a huge confidence booster, especially if you're new to writing. I know I'll be flipping through it again and again once I'm ready to write my own book!
This book was a hard pill to swallow for a romantic like me! However, it was an absolute eye-opener and I'm glad for it. I am NOT a business person and I avoid numbers like the plague, but Stefanie's warm and friendly approach helped soothe my rustled jimmies. She manages to cover a lot of material in depth, yet keeps it brief and simple. What she doesn't have time to cover, she gives you the resources to continue your own research. If you're at all like me and have a tendency to favor your dreams over reality, do yourself a favor and dive right in.
