Some of the advance reviews for the collection

Joe Neri 5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for All Writers  Reviewed in the United States on April 5, 2020

A lot of useful information is packed into this little book! Writing tips and creative advice from a wide spectrum of authors on a wide spectrum of topics. If you are a writer – published or not, fiction or nonfiction – there is at least one good idea, and probably much more, you will get from this book.

Hayra Nur 5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the trip Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2020

Our little New Mexico town has lots of artists, thus lots of studio and gallery tours. It’s a fine afternoon to walk around town and be welcomed to a close look at how they do it.

This little book is the same for word artists. A dozen writers take us in and open up about their particular interests and experiences and skills. There’s a sense of getting to know the people a bit, as well as what they have to say.

The variety! It’s a book to hop around in, not plow through. (But I never did find the dirty writing part.} I’m supposed to say that I received a free (ARC) copy. I did.

Kindle Customer 5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional advice for writers of all levels  Reviewed in the United States on March 30, 2020
