This book was extremely helpful in thinking about my voice. Jeannie and Bria use alternating voices, and they include personal anecdotes to highlight the lessons. The lessons are all worth trying to figure what works for you and what doesn't. Highly recommend this book for people who are interested in analyzing their writing style or just want to improve their craft.

This book is a good place to start honing your voice as a writer. There are a lot of great exercises that make you think about what voice means, what affects voice, what your voice sounds like in your writing, and even how to alter your voice in response to genre or other conventions.

This is a well written book for anyone trying to find their writers voice. You get personal experience that you can relate too. You get exercises that help your thought process and your writing skills. This book takes you back to basics so that a beginner will find it useful and helps those that are more along rethink where they want to go with their book. You get useful references to movies, books and other genres that some might find informative. I would recommend this book.

My critique group decided to take a break from our usual meeting plan to read a book on the craft of writing and discuss it as a group. One of our members suggested Finding Your Voice: Make Your Writing Unique and Unforgettable by Bria Quinlan and Jeannie Lin. It was a good choice.

This is a shortened version of my initial review. In that review, I not only talk about what I did and didn’t like about the book, but I also focus in more on what I learned from it about my own writing. You can find t

This book is packed full of information and examples about what author voice is and how to develop your voice. There are plenty of useful exercises that can be used with your current work in progress to find and refine your voice and those of your characters. Instead of a dry, boring, hard to follow textbook style, the authors make it interesting and sometimes funny to keep your attention on this important subject.
