Excellent information

I’ve read several books on writing and this is one of the best. The chapter on Voice was very enlightening as most books are not as clear on this aspect of writing. Well narrated by two alternating narrators who keep the subject alive. Well done.

Very Informative

I learned a lot about writing YA books from Steve and Dani Acorn. They offered good strategies for outlining using specific checkpoints. Their chapter on scene and sequel was especially helpful to me and my current project. They also provided specific examples from YA novels. I’m very glad I purchased this on Audible.
