it was amazing
bookshelves: a-favorite-author, kindle-bought, on-writing, nonfiction

The title of this book is pretty self-explanatory. The author, who has written many (totally awesome, IMHO) cozy mysteries herself (as well as books in other genres) shares tips for how to write a cozy mystery. Within recent years, I have read several books on writing and have honestly found this to be the most useful and meaningful resource in terms of the actual writing process to me thus far. I really appreciated how Ms. Cohen took some of the intimidation out of the process by sharing many useful tools, tips, and resources. For the first time since owning a Kindle, I found myself highlighting passages in a book. And, they weren't necessarily the instructional "how to" parts, either; instead, they were gems of wisdom that spoke to me. I found the sections regarding character growth to be quite enlightening. I'll definitely be re-reading this book many times over. I've no doubt I'll continue to learn from it. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge with us, Ms. Cohen. It is very much appreciated!
