Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
...and if all you catch is the moon you haven't done too badly! I read this book when it was released as a quick read for World Book day and loved it so much I had to buy a copy for myself. I found it very inspiring and have since bought it as a present for my best friend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay.. 26 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wasn't expecting this kind of book. I thought it would be a novel, but that was my mistake for not looking into it properly. Excellent advice for anyone wanting to become an author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love reading personal stories 3 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As I love reading personal stories this was an excellent read about a woman determined to achieve success as a writer. Sometimes it is too easy to give up on our dream but this inspiring story shows us why, sometimes, it is worth hanging on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with the best! 3 Jan 2013
By Shabzz
I bought this, thinking it was one of Lola Jaye's novels, but when it arrived, I discovered it was actually a self-help book which encourages you to reach for your goals. I'm never letting this one go. It is succinct and a true easy read.

It arrived within days of placing the order and it was in mint condition. Fantastic! Considering it was supposedly second-hand.
