The points were well organized and helpful, though most of them I already knew. A deeper look at finding and networking with editors, agents, and betas would be especially helpful, as I personally struggle with that part a lot as an aspie writer. Overall, this book is a solid read.

This is a great collection of writing tips, advice and thoughts.
The chapters are fairly short but well thought out and nicely paced. Plenty of references to other craft authors for further reading.
A helpful book for new writers and good reminders for the more experienced. The world is rapidly changing and the way in which stories are accessed changing too. Richie covers this aspect in some detail and suggests some helpful ways to consider for reaching out to potential readers.
