Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
I thought this book was quite helpful. It uses a lot of examples that are easy to follow. I'd recommend it to new and emerging writers who want to make their writing stronger. It would also be a helpful reminder to more established writers as they do their edits. For anyone who doesn't like the 'show don't tell advice', this book also covers when telling can be better to use than showing.
Loved this book. It was easy to read with exercises that made me want to review my entire manuscript and put into practice her amazing advice. I think differently and even read differently, more attuned to picturing what the author is saying. Thank you, I'll definitely be using this book as a reference time and again.
This book is a great resource for the beginner writer who aspires to write prose which pulls the reader into the story, immersing them in the characters lives. It has examples and exercises, and by the end you’ll have the tools to produce a much more readable and enjoyable novel.
