I still remember my early days as an author when my main experience of publicising my novels was to do everything I could to avoid it! I was terrified of giving talks and dreaded the thought of people sitting at home, listening to me on the radio. I wish I'd been able to read this book back then. Wannabe a Writer We've Heard Of? is fantastically informative in ways I would never have imagined. I've published more than 20 novels now but reading this, I've still learned many tips and tricks about promotion and PR I didn't know before and, more to the point, I shall be employing them. This guide covers not only getting into print, but how to get your book out thereA" to be appreciated by as many people as possible. The advice is invaluable and thanks to JWJ I'm now working on my first ever elevator pitch. (Watch out Stephen Spielberg - that means YOU!) Jane writes so entertainingly, and with such verve and wit, that anyone would enjoy this book, even those who don't want to be published and have never written anything longer than a shopping list - it's that much fun to read. To sum up I really, really recommend this guide - read it, learn from it and be braver than you think you are. Seriously, it could change your life.

Good writers will always show, rather than tell - so what does this book show us? That it's worth supplementing your own material with quotes from other writers. That a how-to book is a good place to promote your other books. That proof-reading isn't an important part of the publishing process.
Most writers are expert procrastinators, but I feel that advice on how to get Amazon to remove reviews you don't like is wasting time that would be better spent on writing or pursuing more positive avenues for publicity.
An entertaining, occasionally interesting but ultimately disappointing read for writers seeking to improve their public profile.

Lots of useful information. I think it helps to have heard Jane talk on several occasions otherwise her style might seem a bit frivolous.Published 22 months ago by Amazon Customer
- ploddy and not a good read in itself. Much of this is plain common sense and little inspiration - save your money and go to on line advice.Published on 27 May 2014 by Little Rabbit Foo Foo
