We don’t want to tell you too much about this book. It is a truly special story and we don’t want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesn’t. And it’s what happens afterwards that is most important. Once you have read it, you’ll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don’t tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.

In 'How to Write for Success: Best Writing Advice I Received.' the author shares with new and aspiring authors her knowledge gained over the years. The book begins with her trials, errors, and successes, and moves on to the essentials of writing a book to which readers will gravitate. She covers plotting, writing dialogue and narrative, building your story world, choosing a book title, writing the blurb, what an author should do before and after publishing, choosing categories, creating an author brand, book marketing, and most of all how to get sales and reviews. It does not end there. She shows how you can achieve recognition in an author's world and become successful. You can become a best-selling author. You can become an award-winning author. The author emphasizes it is up to each individual to apply what they have learned in the book to achieve their dreams and goals. There is a segment on frequently asked questions with answers, that no aspiring author would want to miss. Seasoned authors can also learn something from this book. Be proud to be an Author. Read an extract of a Review from Readers Favorite: Author Brenda Mohammed gives the reader valuable nuggets of truth to use within their own writing career in How To Write For Success. There is a brief introduction listing the various books the author has written and her ability to encompass different types of literature. The purpose of this book is to show readers that the author has a passion to help other readers fulfill their lifelong dream of writing their own book. I really appreciated the personal stories of how the author writes her own material and how important research is, even before one begins to write. She also lists several Facebook groups she has joined to help promote both her material and herself as an author. One of the best statements I appreciated within this book is: "A book description is your sales page. It will sell your book. Make sure it is engaging and can turn a browse into a buy." This is great and valuable information for a writer to understand. There is also listed the importance of copyrighting the material, getting an ISBN number, etc. Whoever gets the ISBN number is considered the publisher. The author has the choice of getting their own or letting the publisher get it for them. Pre-orders are very important to an author. Creating excitement before the book is even printed is huge. There are also many listed things that one can do following publication. Branding yourself is also very important. People must know about you and your material, how to find it and consider reading it. I really enjoyed all the links provided in the e-book, allowing the reader to go to various publishers, writing aids, Facebook groups, etc. This is an asset to any writer at any level, given the detailed information, but for the beginner, it is a must-have!
