Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of Die Again: “Whether you’re writing your first novel or your twentieth, this book is a must-have for any novelist. And it’s one of the most readable, entertaining books on writing out there.”

Laura Abbott, co-owner & managing editor,  Amber Quill Press: “I’ve read many manuscript submissions that were near-misses. If those writers had had the benefit of this book, they’d be published right now. This is a must-read for the burgeoning story-teller and serious novelist, and it’s a necessity for editors who seek to nurture their writing clients.”

Dan Conaway, literary agent, Writer’s House: “Learn the critical art of ruthless and rigorous self-editing from a man who understands the art better than most. His practical, sensible advice really can help you become a better writer.”

Lou Aronica, editor, publisher, president of The Fiction Studio: “Writers will learn a great deal from the pages of this book. Rhamey offers the kind of advice that could make a huge difference in a writer’s prospects.”

“This is one of the outstanding ‘how to’ books about writing. I keep it right beside two other favorites, Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Dave King and Renni Browne and On Writing by Stephen King.”
