My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

In The Life and Lessons of a Young Author, the author shares her experiences and explains what did and did not work for her. She also encourages authors to get feedback from as many people as possible, especially strangers, and to accept negative feedback and use it to better their writing. 

She tries to caution new authors that rewriting and publishing can take weeks, months, even years. Sales may also be a disappointment, but authors need to hang in there. Many bestselling authors struggled for years before they were published or had bestsellers.

This is a good book for authors who are starting out or thinking about writing a book. It’s very short so there’s not a lot about the writing process. It’s more about what has worked for her along with a little encouragement.
