Customer Reviews

Fabulous Book!

I've read this book and used it for my own writing, it gives a lot of attention to detail and provides great tips for improving characters and plot. The target audience is for 10 and up, but it works for kids of all ages.

The answer to my prayers!!

Gail Carson Levine has been and always will be my most favorite author. She was who inspired me to write and to keep going. Just recently, I decided that writing stories for adults and teenagers were really not my forte, so I went to see if she had a writer's site with some tips, but then I found out that she's written an entire book about her writing tips and I was completely overjoyed!! It's really improved my writing skills and is a wonderful tool!!

Most Useful Purchase I Ever Bought!!

My most valuable writing resource. I was checking it out of the library so often I decided to buy it. That was five years ago, and it has never stopped being my #1 go-to guide on writing!
