Not overly convinced. The tips were good, I really liked reading the input of publishers and authors, and yet it all seemed more like it belonged at a blog than on a published book.
The m/m fiction writer's bible!Indispensable advice. Also a very useful tool for reviewers, editors and proofreaders by the doyen of the genre. That it's funny and entertaining to read is an additional bonus. Highly recommended!
