Short, clear and to the point. Automatically enabled me to see the flaws in previously rejected short stories - in fact after reading this, they were glaring me in the face!

I'm a fan of this lady now, and have bought all her other books on the strength of reading just one. Not only does she come across as knowing what she is talking about, but she writes in a way that's succinct enough for you the reader to understand. The fact that she is already a successful short story writer, is an added bonus. It only cost a couple of quid, but in value and usability (is that even a word?!) it is worth a whole lot more. Does exactly what it says on the tin. From one short story writer-to-be to another - buy!

A sharp, to the point guide for writers looking to publish in magazines. There are hundreds of books on the market to help wanna be writers, but this e-book is concise with easy to follow guidelines which inspire and make you want to revisit your rejected stories. The book is inexpensive and does not waste words getting to the nub of the issues. Excellent value for money.

Reading this has made me look at my short story writing in a different way. I have many stories that have been rejected before being filed away, never to see the light of day again. A re draft may be all that's needed to turn it in to a story that sells. Linda Lewis' advice has now given me the confidence to do this.

A useful approach to writing better short stories. It can't supply the one thing you are going to need above all others: talent.
