This book is the perfect read for anyone wanting to start up or expand their writing network. Writing can be a difficult business, and most of the work is only just beginning when you write ‘the end’ on your manuscript (fiction or non-fiction). In this well set-out, easy-to-read guide, Lizzie has pulled together many of the key elements to help you start, and keep, going.

As I do with most books about writing, I planned to do a straight read-through first, not really thinking about my own situation at all, but that soon went by the board. Almost at once, thanks to the friendly style of this book, I could see how the advice could easily be adapted to my own situation, and so pulled out a notebook to jot ideas down in as I went. As a result, I’ve got lists of ideas to try, and things to try and improve on in my own writing network.

Everyone, no matter what stage of the writing journey they are at, will find plenty of useful ideas to give a go here. Definitely recommended for anyone wanting to move their writing business to the next level.
