3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing resources lists tools and references that helped tremendously
By Jenna Gonzalez on December 2, 2020
I read this book in a single weekend. It is well paced and simple to read and understand. It provided a ton of tools lists and resources that led me to the book I had been looking for. While this book didn’t help me define and tweak my craft it did provide me the resources that worked. I loved the use of white space that makes it so much easier to read. It was super helpful for someone who is planning to publish but I am at the plotting stages. It offered great come back to elements. I loved the reminder or note to read the book thoroughly first then go back I get lost in reading and doing sometimes with these sort of books. In all if your writing a series or even to publish gave excellent references lists tools and resources that will be valuable as I move through this process.
