“This is a great little book on the nuts and bolts of writing. I was delighted to read that there are more volumes in the future. I'll be on the lookout for them, and so should you.” – Nancy M. Scuri
“… writers provide insight into what it takes to write, the long hours, the sacrifices, the rejections, the negative reviews and the rewards. There are great pieces of advice on self editing, pacing and infusing your writing with an emotional core. I'll be going back to my manuscripts and applying what I have learned. I highly recommend this book to any aspiring writers of any level. It'll be a great reference book for me.” – Hasse Chacon
“You know, when you are reading a book you want the story to flow. It can be annoying when you have to reread things over again to understand what the author is trying to say. Jack Ketchum relays the art of pacing. Giving examples, he will show you how slight changes can make a huge difference on how we perceive what we read.” – Paula Limbaugh
