MY REVIEW: (5 STARS) In Plan Like a BestSeller, Bria Quinlan lays out steps and suggestions to help you transform your writing habits/goals into a solid plan to help you succeed.
Her in depth questions help you look inside yourself to find out what you truly want, need, and fear relating to writing and publishing.
I would recommend this for anyone who is struggling to find themselves as an author and for anyone who needs a push to put a plan into place.
