"I'm so glad I grabbed this guide. If I'm honest, writing a book is really confusing, but it's so easy to think 'I can do this!' and just start doing things in all random directions.

Having this guide next to me while working on my draft really kept me on course."

"I've been guilty of all of these at one point, but especially number 1, gluttony.

7 Deadly Shortcuts is a reminder to focus on what really matters: writing the best book you can with the best help you can get. It's the no-b.s. tough love you need if you want to succeed as self-published author."

"I love the way you equated the widely-known seven deadly sins to writing. This is such an ingenious way to discuss writing and just getting up and doing it - which is something so many writers struggle with. Your clear, concise actionable steps to fixing each 'sin' are easy to implement and make it all feel easier than before."
