What I think about this book:
It was totally AWESOME!!! I loved it all the way through! I took notes and have tried several of the 'Make it Yours' ideas. I wished it would have continued! It was SUCH a great book!! It helped me so much in my writing journey! :) They give examples from other books, suggest other writing books, and make EVERYTHING understandable! :D
The question we hear most from new writers is, "How do I get published?"
And the answer is: Respect your dream.
Every writer's journey is different, yet as we've reflected on our experiences and those of the writers around us, we've seen time and time again that those who are successful are the ones who had the patience and endurance to stick with this writing thing. They didn't look for shortcuts (at least, not for long), nor did they quit after five, ten, or one hundred rejections.
We can't make the process easy for you, but it's our hope that this book will be a tool you can turn to time and time again when you're thinking, "Okay... what's next?"
