This review is from: Creative Writing: How to Write a Book: Learn How to Write in 60 Minutes (Kindle Edition)
This is a very useful book and I found it very informative. However, early on the book, in Chapter 2 there is a glaring factual error which had the effect of denting my confidence somewhat in the author who attributes the novel "Dracula" to Mary Shelley the author of "Frankenstein". Bram Stoker was the author of "Dracula". Apart from that this is a useful book in focusing the mind on the whys and wherefores of creative writing and the publishing world. But even so, I was left with a niggling doubt in my mind about the author's credibility, wondering were there mistakes in there that I simply hadn't spotted? The irony is that the chapter in question was a discussion on research, while the error comically clashes with the book's subtitle "then do it properly". Oh well. You pay your money and Frugal Comfortsyou take your chances.
