Instead of focusing on the details of the craft this book focuses more on what to do with those skills. It covers everything from conventions to agents to how to get your book into libraries. Don't get me wrong, there is lots of great advice on the craft from scene building to plotting, but I found that the most valuable information came from the business end of things, a topic often neglected or glossed over in other writing books.
It is also a great book for introverts like me who need to learn how and when to put their professional hats on, and it explains why a bad attitude, or even a reclusive one, can break your career. In short, this book can show anyone how to live a successful writer's life.
Everything from how to start, how to set up a routine, how to get an agent (and why), and even promotional tips for those of you with works available.
