Alicia Dean’s practical manner of explaining methods to reduce grammar errors and make sentences sing inspired me to utilize her editing services.” ~Maureen L. Bonatch, author of the humorous paranormal romance, GRANDMA MUST DIE "If you're like me, you have a strong desire to improve your writing, but very little time to devote to it. That is one reason Alicia Dean's Two Minute Tips are so invaluable. It's a little nibble of information, not too overwhelming. And it's important stuff! Tips that really help to make your work stronger. Honestly, I receive other daily writing tips in my inbox, but I always skim over the subject line and put them in a folder to read "someday." But whenever I see that Alicia Dean has a blog post sharing her tips, I click on it right away. In fact, even though I follow her blog, I still downloaded a copy of her book to keep as a handy resource. I recommend it highly!" ~M.J. Schiller, author of the ROCKING ROMANCE COLLECTION, REAL ROMANCE COLLECTION, and ROMANTIC REALMS COLLECTION. “Alicia’s Two-minute Tips are handy, down-to-earth and useful. I confess that just before I sent in one of my manuscripts for publication consideration, I read her tip about over-use of the word "look" in connection with dialog and dialog tags. I scrolled through my ms to discover (to my horror) "Look" was overused to a fault. I worked hard to edit every one of them and knew that my writing was the better for my effort.” ~ Susan Coryell Author of A RED, RED ROSE and BENEATH THE STONES

    I follow Alicia Dean's blog where Two Minute Writing Tips originated. Easy to read, thought-provoking. I had many "duh" moments when I realized I do what she said not to. LOL The book is a quick pick up/put down read. You need time to digest each tip and see how you can use it in your own work. Lots of great examples.
