    1. Katie Grace on said:

      This was an excellent informational read. Anyone can learn something from it, but that being said, I already knew quite a lot what he was talking about so this caused me to skim over some sections because of the multitude of writing articles I read everyday. :P But it's nice to have it all in one book. I'd definitely recommend it for NaNo writers.

    2. Cathrine Bonham on said:

      In this book Mr. Gerke asserts that the only rule of fiction is to engage your reader. After finishing this book it is clear to me that he must believe this rule to apply to non-fiction as well. As I have aspired towards my authorial goals I have slogged through many manuals on the craft. There are not many as engaging and as clearly written as those penned by Mr. Gerke. Now on to the meat of the matter. I have spent the past year writing a novel in spurts and it is driving me crazy. So naturall [...]

      I got to pre-read this for my brother (he's doing NaNoWriMo for the first time this year). What a great tool! I really look forward to using it next time I attempt to write a book.As I've won NaNoWriMo twice already, I don't mind that the section on the actual writing of the first draft is the shortest. It is all the preparatory work that takes up half this book--and looks very valuable to me.I especially appreciate that Mr. Gerke doesn't assert that his way is the only way. He gives his opinion [...]

    4. Blair Hodgkinson on said:

      A one-stop shop for approaching a novel from start to finish and beyond. I'm applying a lot of what I learned from reading this book to the creation of my first novel.

    5. Elizabeth Howe on said:

      I loved this, not only is it helpful in the set up process leading up to the thirty days of writing with suggestions for stuff to decide and be aware of beforehand. It doesn't have that typical scheduled out days for the 30 days of writing. It does have a bunch of tips on how to make the 30 days less painful, however the aftermath of some of the advice such as no cleaning can be treacherous but it's fine. What I really enjoyed was the now what pages of advice. It was extremely helpful to have a [...]

    6. Amylyn on said:

      Some really helpful stuff in here. Some of it was repetitive so I skipped over a few parts but most of the information was useful. I'll be rereading the 3rd part once I actually finish my novel. I felt very inspired while reading this book and the author is great at building your self confidence and giving you tools to craft with said new found confidence. I recommend it.

    7. LeAnn L. on said:

      If you've always wanted to write a novel but just don't know where to begin, I recommend this booke author assures you that the only golden rule of completing a novel is to know how to engage the reader from beginning to end

    8. Alyssa Jenkins on said:

      There is a ton of useful information in this book and I still use it as a reference for my writing. I found the section on editing to be particularly enlightening.

    9. Brentman99 on said:

      I found this book quite helpful in some areas. The author has a practical approach that emphasizes preparation so that when you do start writing, you have a better chance of meeting the 50,000 words in a month goal. Gerke uses the idea of achieving small victories to create the larger victory: a finished rough draft in thirty dollars.I think that this would be a good starting for a new author that wants to put their great idea on paper.

    10. Abigail on said:

      If you want a kick in the pants to write that novel you always wanted to, this is the book, even if you're not going to finish it in a month. Full of tips and tricks to jumpstart your creative process and add some pizazz to your storyline, this book inspired me to get cracking on that book I started writing 15 years ago. Uh yeah. This, combined with Steven Pressfield's books The War of Art and Do The Work, and you will never get away with leaving that unfinished draft languishing on your hard dr [...]

    11. Erika on said:

      This book inspired me to write with intent. Every time I opened this book and read a little I ended up getting so inspired and came out with so much drive to continue my writing. The book only took me so long to read because I was writing so much in the meantime. Highly recommend to anyone who has dreamed I writing a book but who needs a swift kick in the ass to get started.

    12. Ruth Kvarnström-Jones on said:

      The points made and advice given in this book are backed up by comprehensible examples and make perfectly logical sense. Worth having a pen and paper on hand to write a revision check list based on Jeff Gerke's excellent direction. One of the best books on writing I've read.

    13. Christie on said:

      This is probably pretty solid for first time novelists. For someone looking for additional tips in novel writing (or fiction writing), speeding up the writing process, etc. it's a book to skim. That being said, I did get 5-6 new tips from it that I hadn't seen elsewhere.

    14. Will Hogarth on said:

      Another good book by Jeff and a great read for anyone thinking of attempting the challenge of NaNoWriMo. Quite a large section of the book focuses on the perpetration and the build up to getting started with the writing and will help writers enter the challenge with all tools in place.

    15. Loving on said:

      HelpfulThis is a good book for beginners. It wasn't great but it wasn't amazing. It doesn't tell you how to write a book in 30 days but it tells you how to get ready to do the writing with some decent editorial tips.

    16. Skye on said:

      5028 words in and counting! 10% of the 50 000 words guys.I'm pretty excited about this, and hope it will last!! I failed my last NaNoWriMo so D:P.S. I don't agree with everything here but it was helpful. Definitely worth reading as a guide!

    17. John Rossman on said:

      Still reading this book as I get sidetracked really easily. So far the one thing I really like in this book is that there really is only one rule, "Please your readers." If you can do that, then you have a career.

    18. Josh on said:

      I'm going to have to buy this one. A solid guide to planning a novel from start to finish to write out a full draft in a month. Planning on using this as one of my field-guides for NaNoWriMo.

    19. J R on said:

      Very helpful book when you're trying to write over 1,000 words per day for your novel.Glad I bought this eBook for constant references and encouragement.

    20. Carolyn on said:

      I love Jeff's style and I felt I got a lot out of this book. I still have to finish my own novel but I know I have help when I get to the next step.

    21. Serra Zander on said:

      This book is great! Lots of good explanations and tips on how to set up a novel and tighten up a novel. Great for the novice and the experienced. Highly recommended.

    22. Brett Buckley on said:

      Fast becoming the most often read book on my writing books shelf. Excellent practical help.

    23. Bonnie Lacy on said:

      I loved this book as I have done several NaNoWriMo events and this helps so much. Keep on writing!
