This book by Nancy I. Sanders was recommended to me by other writers so I made the purchase. She has written over 70 books. You can find many other reviews for it on Amazon. I have just started reading the book so I am only giving it a mid-point rating for now.

I am going to put the book to the test to see if it delivers on what it claims. I will blog my reaction and results. If you would like to hear about the results in action, here is where you can read more...
This book is a must-read, or at least a must-have reference, for a beginning writer. Sanders takes you by the hand, assuming nothing, and clearly and simply describes how to get started with writing your first stories, to researching the market, to organizing your office, materials, bookwork, time, and finances, to submissions and beyond. It's not about the craft of writing. It is about the planning, management, and business of writing, with tips on craft included in appropriate chapters.

This book gives many ideas on time management and how to go about building a career. It explains the process of submitting to editors in a new way that I had not read before. I found it helpful and motivating how Sanders went her own way, believed in herself and made a career by walking a different path. The information and techniques she presents are valuable and made me forgo the style that at times made the reading less rewarding.

This book is very practical and if I ever really decide to make writing a career I will buy this book. She gives concrete ways to reach your goal of making money through writing and also publishing what you love to write.
