“… a very good analysis of the genre markets, a deft guide to the craft of modern fiction writing, & a glimpse into the life of the best-selling novelist—not the gazillionaires like King or Koontz or Mailer or whoever, but the scrivener who just makes a nice living at cranking out entertainment for the rest of us.”
—Anthony D. Ravenscroft, Amazon.com reviewer
