    First in Fiction is a great down and dirty guide to all of the helpful little hints that writers and aspiring writers need to know. This is a great guide and even though it isn't that long I learned a lot from it and I'm really glad that I read it. Despite being short it cuts right to the heart of what is important without all of the fluff that other writing books add in. This is a great guide that is direct and to the point. 5 Stars First in Fiction is a great down and dirty guide to all of the helpful little hints that writers and aspiring writers need to know.

    Short yet great food for thought My expectations were few when I picked this up however, as a new writer, I pick up everything I can and read it. Occasionally, I find a gem like this that clearly, concisely states what you need to consider then leaves it to you to apply.
