Had plenty of common sense advice, though, so I suppose it’d be good for newbies to writing and to the genre.
Liked the checklists, the exercises were interesting.
Just about the only thing I didn’t agree with was the using social networks advice and the part that said that using the internet “couldn’t hurt” (uh, yes it can: become one of those writers who lash out at negative criticism on your book and it’ll hurt you. :P)
Also liked when it went on the part of research and interviewing people, because most books I’ve read so far didn’t touch the interviewing part so much, while this one did.
