I'm so proud to be part of this compilation. It was fun to think of the writer I used to be in all my naivety and to see how far I've come. I enjoyed reading other writers' journeys even more. New writers will (hopefully) learn from our mistakes, and I hope all writers will be inspired.

This book gets 5 stars.
A batch of heartfelt letters written by authors. Really unique. I doubt you'll find another collection like this in a hurry...
These are some points that captured my attention:
1. The three P's - patience, perseverance, passion.
2. Write down your ideas, you WILL forget them later.
3. Practice creative altruism - it's all about supporting others, and in doing so you're supporting yourself too.

I'm SO proud to be a contributing author to this book! It's seriously a WONDERFUL compilation of authors at every stage in their career talking about how they began writing, keep writing and giving their best advice. What's better is that it's FREE!!!

Thank you to Carrie Butler and P.K. Hrezo for the amazing work they did to get this put together. It's a great source of inspiration and motivation for writers and I LOVE that they wanted to give back to other authors with this.

This is a great compilation of wisdom, wit, and wonderful support for writers at every level. These writers know their stuff, and it's helpful and encouraging to glean from their experiences. They touch on so many things that are important to know before and during the writing journey. Excellent advice - I highly recommend this book!

It was great reading the original blog posts from these authors, and I was fortunate to join and be included in this project. To have all the letters in one place for easy reading and as a writing resource is wonderful. Kudos to Butler and Hrezo for putting these letters together in an ebook.

I'm honored to be among them.
What a great way to share advice and individual experiences with other writers.
I'm enjoying every entry!

Excellent book for the aspiring writer. This book is filled with inspiring stories from writers who have been in the trenches and are surviving. And this book points out that there isn't one single path to achieving the writing dream.
