Digital Writer Success nails it as a practical tool to get started writing for income! Way more than fluff, it hands you page after page of hands-on, how-to information that empowers the writer hoping to earn a living. So much grounded common sense in this book, the kind you don’t see in most writing guides. I’ll be suggesting this book when I speak to groups. Well done.
