A really interesting read with lots of great tips.
If you’re a first time author, it’s a must read. If you’ve been published a while (like me), you’ll still find some help stuff in here.

This book is a really good use of your time

“The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Robert Frost

“i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)”
E.E. Cummings, Selected Poems

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
Emily Dickinson

“Some guys are worth breaking the rules for.”

Thanks so much for telling me how much you enjoyed Betwixt. I'm so glad :) I'm not even sure how I'd go about getting Betwixt translated into Spanish, but I will ask around. That could be a fun project for the future :) Thanks for the idea.
