Here’s what others are saying!

“A great book about getting better writing skills quickly through implementing critiquing strategies. A couple of things really stood out for me. One was how easy it is to read and digest. When things are easy to absorb I find taking action and implementing the tips so much easier. The second thing was the explicit examples of comments and call out bubbles designed to provide real examples on real manuscripts. These are beautifully designed in the book. It’s a wonderful way to demonstrate examples. To top it off, there’s a free writing course as well.”

—Anthony Puttee, Book Cover Cafe

“I have been a part of a local writers’ group for some time, but I never really felt like I have been contributing effectively. I often stayed silent or made comments that I knew weren’t very helpful. After reading Kelly’s book on critiquing, I feel empowered to contribute more often in my local group. I have also joined an online group recommended in the book. There is so much in this book for the writer at any stage of her career. If you are planning to start a writers’ group, this book is a valuable guide to get you up and running and on your way. I would recommend this book to any writer thinking of joining or forming a writers’ group, and that should be ALL writers!”

— Susan Faith Corl, fiction author

“I received this novel from the author in exchange for my honest opinion, and I absolutely loved this novel! The great thing about this novel is that Kelly gives you a lot of useful tips giving and getting critiques. A week before I started reading this novel, I joined the site, Ladies Who Critique, so I was thrilled to see that Kelly mentioned this website as one of her recommended online resources for writers. After reading Kelly’s novel, I feel comfortable and confident enough to give and receive critiques on my current and future manuscripts!”

—Josie Ann, Amazon reviewer
