Self Help, Information, Teaching
by Claudia VanLydegraf
Rik Feeney makes writing a book easy-as-pie and
enjoyable, and with a little insight, you can follow his ways and
make your book an automatic seller. I wish that I had known about
this guy when I wrote my own book (he was probably a youngster in
the publishing world at the same time I was) but alas, it was way
too long ago for my book to have gotten any help from his teaching
about how to write a great little book. Maybe my book would have
benefited a lot more than I could possibly have known and I might
have gotten a regular publisher, one that really wanted to help
me promote my book; or even if I had gone on my own (and Feeney
explains how to do that) I may have gotten better reviews and more
interest in my story.
Rik Feeney has a great sense of humor and explains
the many ways you should think about writing without burdening you
with a lot of self-important theories like "I am the ONLY person
that can (write this story) say this, so I have to come off as being
the best at it" stuff. He gives instruction so easily, and
they are filled with great insights about the publishing world that
he no doubt learned over the course of many years and many frustrations.
The book is simple, easy to read, concise, enjoyable and fun, and
YOU WILL BECOME A BETTER WRITER if you follow his patterns and suggestions.
I have a few friends in the publishing industry and read about their
frustrations about authors, and they all say the same types of things.
This book explains what you need to do, how you need to do it and
why, so that you can get your book published, whether it is fiction,
non-fiction, the great novel, or a teaching/self-help book..
And you will
actually laugh a few times during the short time, (the book is ONLY
144 pages of large type, double-spaced lists and short paragraphs)
you actually spend reading it. By all means, IF you ever think you
will write a book, give Writing Books for Fun, Fame and Fortune
a try before you sit down and start putting words to the computer.
You can also get this little book via Kindle and
probably nook and some other types of e-readers, should you have
one, or should you not want the carry around the paperback version.
This book is a great addition to your arsenal of ideas.
