This review is from: The Forest for the Trees: An Editor's Advice to Writers (Paperback)
If you've ever wondered what happens to your beloved manuscript when you finally drop it into the letter box, this is the book for you. Betsy is on the side of the writer, and indeed, the book buying public, as her aim is to produce enjoyable fiction. She gives constructive and sympathetic advice which would normally take years to pick up from experience alone. I have read this cover to cover and I keep it handy as a reference. She has a warm, chatty tone, but she also gives you the facts. This book was recommended on the Lisa Jewell website, and as far as I'm concerned- it was well worth it!
