What does this mean?
When the book was first put out in November, it was 529 pages and just over 104,000 words. I’ve since added to it, which means it comes in at 667 pages and 124,000 words.
You’re getting a lot of writing advice here, and for the price of $4.99, it’s a real value. Honestly, I don’t think you’d get that kind of value at a university.
- First, university writing programs will typically charge you $10,000 or more, and that’s just for one year out of four;
- Next, many university writing professors don’t have a lot of books out, or if they do, these books don’t make a lot of money;
- Then, even fewer adjunct professors and teaching aides have books out, and those will most likely be your “teachers” for the first couple of years;
- Finally, how are you going to learn how to write in school?
The only real way to write is by learning how through practice. And everyone knows that university students procrastinate more than anything. I did it, you did it…and that doesn’t lead to words on the page.
You get that honesty in this book, and you get tips on how to write. You get a lot more, as the 140-chapter table of contents makes clear.
Check the book out on Amazon and read the first few chapters. If you don’t pick up any new tips, don’t buy the book. But if you do get a new idea, maybe spending $4.99 is a good idea. After all, it’ll put you ahead of about 75% of the struggling authors out there, authors that have no clue how to succeed.
You do, though – you’re reading this site. Now go read this book.
