Review:

Travelwriter Marketletter Read this before you write your next bookit will streamline your activities. Sandy Whelchel, National Writers Association Creative people are more productive when they have the best tools. Get the best computer you can afford and this book. Ray Newton, National Coordinator, Reader's Digest Writing Workshops Dan shares his experience and insights in a readable, clear and educational way. Nat Bodian, author, The Joy of Publishing. I find the contents to be a treasury of wisdom, usable suggestions, and resource information that will be of much benefit to would-be authors. Its broad coverage also includes much that will appeal to old hands such as myself. I heartily recommend it. Mark Victor Hansen, Coauthor, Chicken Soup for the Soul series Dan is a genius in our business. Absorb his brilliance, wisdom, and re-duplicable insights by reading and employing this book. He'll show your how to profitably break into print and keep the money rollin' in. Hannelore Hahn, Founder and Executive Director, International Women's Writing Guild Busy people have trouble finding time to write. Savvy authors do several things at the same time. Dan Poynter shows you how. The Bookwatch. Writing Nonfiction is an invaluable, recommended addition to all personal, creative writing seminar, and public library writer reference collections. Jay Abraham, Getting Everything You Can out of All You've Got. I'd trust Dan's word, recommendations and predictions over about any publisher, editor, agent or book marketing consultant I've met and I've met the "supposed" best. Maryanne Raphael, Writers World This book offers the best tools and the best resources for becoming a successful writer. Bob Holt, Book Forum of San Diego I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a story but just can't imagine how to write it down. --Sandy Whelchel
