Just finished the last book of this series and can give a solid 4.5 stars for the series. Each book is written by a different author. I found the James Scott Bell ones were the most fun to get through. He seems to have a knack for writing instruction, as he puts my worries to rest, and offers advice to build confidence for new writers. They were a fast read and not boring at all. I recommend reading more than once to study all of the knowledge dripping from these books.

I have all the books in this series and absolutely love them. I turn to them every time I sit down to write. The newest one on revision and self-editing has been really helpful.

If I tried to write a novel, I would get bored, or bogged down, or disinterested. Who wants to spend a year or more of their life writing then find out whether your efforts are worth ...more
