I'd recommend for beginner authors

I liked the book but it won't help an experienced author much. Most of the information I already knew from writing my own books. But it'd be great for beginners.

Decent information, dry delivery

I don't want to be discouraging here, because the book wasn't bad--it really wasn't, but audiobooks pivit on the "voice", and though Sara has a nice tone, I wished there was more inflection and energy.

The lack of it made this a hard-to-finish experience.

BUT---and yes, this is more important--the book has wonderful information and insights I needed to know as an author. I was interested in understanding better what genre I was in, what i could Do with my books and ideas--and in THAT respect, Sara excelled!
