My thoughts …

I LOVE this book and strongly recommend you all just skip straight to the buying link and get your copy NOW!

First of all, it isn’t a deep and detailed book in the sense of long, rambling paragraphs. It’s perfectly easy to dip in and out of the advice, without having to sit for hours and hours reading.

Jones covers all sorts of motivational tips, from the more obvious write down your goals and look at them every day type, to some that I think are absolute genius but which I’m not going to share … you’ll have to get the book!

This book is great for when you’re having those moments of self-doubt. For when writer’s block kicks in. For when you’ve been sat staring at your WIP for sixteen hours and haven’t written or edited a single word. For when you have the end in sight but there’s something stopping you getting there.

The ideas Jones shares are wonderful, easy to do, and, more importantly, they work.

No, I’m not an author, but I spend all my time working on manuscripts and the methods Jones shares work just as well for when I’m in need of a kick up the backside to keep going!

Please, go and get your copy now.

Hugest of thanks to the author for my copy and to Kelly at Love Books Group for inviting me on to the blog tour.
