REVIEW OF CHRYS FEY'S NEW BOOK

Quote for the week:  “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” 
― Dr. SeussOh, The Places You'll Go!

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by. I am delighted to share Author Chrys Fey's latest book with you. You may have heard about it or not. Whichever, enjoy your visit.



Look at those sparks flying. Yours will be too once you read this book. My thoughts.

WRITE WITH FEY


10 SPARKS TO GUIDE YOU FROM IDEA TO PUBLICATION


By Chrys Fey



Hundreds of books to help writers on their journeys to publication have been written. Each one I’ve read has given me valuable information that I’ve used through the years. I just finished reading Author Chrys Fey’s new book WRITE WITH FEY-10 SPARKS TO GUIDE YOU FROM IDEA TO PUBLICATION, and, in my humble opinion, it is one of the best. The author has covered just about every topic a writer could want and need to know. Whether you’re starting out in your writing career or have been around for years, like me, you most likely will find exciting new information to guide you down that crazy path called publication. Or if you’re published and looking for ways to promote your work, you’ll find that, along with other valuable information, here, as well.


For example, the author talks about story essentials, a book’s steps from beginning to end, how to bring your characters to life, and so much more. She discusses “Editing a Book,” and I’ve marked some of those comments to help me with my work. Another thing I’ve done is create a “Style Sheet” that the author suggests. With my terrible memory it will be a life saver I’m sure.


I could go on and on about how Chrys Fey’s book is helping me discover new ways to promote my work and to create interesting characters, but you’ll get all the great details when you read the book. She has inspired me to try new ideas. Why not? We’re never too old or too young to learn.


I highly recommend this book if you are an author or hope to be an author someday. It may have the answers to your questions. Happy Reading.
