"At this price, you canít go wrong even if you are only curious about writing. Lida is the Publisher of Twilight Times Books, so she knows her topic from first hand experience, so you can be assured that this is a well thought out volume. Highly recommended by Baryon."

Reviewed by Barry Hunter for Baryon Online.


"While unabashedly geared for the "prepublished" ebook author of speculative fiction, much of the advice crosses genre boundaries and proves useful to writers aiming for traditional print markets, as well. In fact, with the Internet becoming a major force in the world of book marketing, authors at all rungs of the literary ladder of success will benefit from this handy and well-organized reference. The hypertext references make it easy to skip to specific topics within the book...."

Reviewed for Crescent Blues by Kim D. Headlee, the author of Dawnflight, a novel about the legend of Guinevere.
