Reviews from Amazon:

Be inspired and be grateful for this amazing book!!

This is a great resource for any of you would-be or aspiring writers, as it is written as a collection of short-attention-span, bite-sized, real-life accounts by real people just like me and you, all of whom managed to write their first book. And many more...

Some of them completed it in a few weeks or months, whereas others took years, but all of them succeeded and all of them bring an enthusiastic account of the individualistic process of their own approach to writing, how they overcame the obstacles (confidence, procrastination, work, family, time etc), dealt with the rejections and simply refused to be deterred in their conviction and deeper self belief that they could and would give birth to the book within them. (Wow, even a man can now give birth!)

They also generously give many good tips to make the process easier for those who are prepared to listen and don't want to reinvent the wheel and do it all the hard way.

I love this book, in fact I still have not finished reading it and it is only the third book I have read of the 600+ I have on my beloved Kindle, including my own first effort, which I have edited and reedited, added to and subtracted from, published and republished it on Amazon Kindle many times. In fact, I feel this book has shown that while I have so much to learn, I am on the right tract and shouldn't feel guilty about all the editing I have done - it just shows, there is always room for improvement until you write the words "The End".

Actually that's not true as Amazon Kindle Publishing means you can reedit and republish your book again and again if you wish!

It has given me hope and allowed me to throw abandon - I think I mean caution, but I love the word "abandon" - to the wind and shake off the prospective writer's biggest curse - which is his or her own self doubts!

For this I am eternally grateful.

Finally, many, if not all, the authors have added links to their other novels as well as useful resources and their own websites.
