Review quote

"Alison Morton is the energetic and well-connected writer of a successful, ever-expanding series of alternate history thrillers and also of non-fiction, so advice on writing from her is always going to be worth reading. Her discipline as a writer is evidenced by her ability to encapsulate these nuggets of advice into neat and well-formed articles of just 500 words.

This little volume is a handy source of inspiration and motivation not only for the new writer, as the subtitle suggests, but also a tonic for writers at any stage who might be flagging or lapsing into bad habits.

As an established author myself, but always conscious of having more to learn and needing constant head-patting to keep me motivated, I thought this little book was a tonic and a pick-me-up that would benefit any writer. I'll be keeping it on my Kindle to dip into now and again whenever I feel the need of a cheerleader."
