    "Terrific book for improving your writing."

    TARGET AUDIENCE: Those who are interested in improving their writing.

    CONTENT: I was extremely impressed with both the content of the writing and the layout. Since reading the book I have noticed how much I tell instead of showing in my own writing. She really made the content meaningful. Her examples were rich and meaningful.

    NARRATOR: The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the examples alive. Easy to listen go.

    OVERALL: I truly loved this book and am looking forward to reading more from this author. Highly recommended.

    "Excellent pointers"

    Received this book free of charge in order to give an honest review. I must say I was ver impressed with the information and how she gave good solid examples to go by. I found myself going back again and again to my manuscript revising it based on the new advice and ideas that popped up as I listened. I think anyone wanting to write will learn something from this book. Highly recommend it.

    "Showing and Telling Readers..."
    Any additional comments?


    I read a lot but usually my views are from the reader's point of view not the author.

    This was an interesting take on a writer's challenge.

    The author discusses a wide array of writing techniques, as well as helpful tools, marketing tips, and thoughts on book covers.

    She also stresses the difference between showing and telling readers.

    This was a well thought out book with helpful examples.


    Julie Carruth did well with the narration.

    "Surprisingly Helpful Writing Advice"

    (This book was provided to me at no cost in exchange for an honest review.)

    Sherry Soule, a.k.a., “S. A. Soule,” is a California-based writer primarily of paranormal romance and urban fiction, much of it centered around themes of good vs. evil. She has published at least a dozen or so novels over the past five years, and as a self-promoter, she is a veritable one-woman keyboard army, blanketing the web with various blogs, social media accounts, interviews with bloggers, book review promoters, and even her own “street team,” which consists of fans who help spread the word about her work. As S.A. Soule, she serves as a senior editor for a small, independent publishing company, and, additionally, runs her own sideline editing service, where she accepts manuscripts over the web. In 2011, “The Romance Reviews,” a reader-based review site, listed Soule’s book “Beautifully Broken” among the nominees for “Best in Paranormal Romance,” and to date, this book, along with the others in the series (known as “Spellbound Prodigies”) is what she is best known for. Despite her talent, dedication, and ability to carve out new roles for herself as a writer, she remains, in her own words, “still basically an unknown author trying to break through that invisibility barrier and build a readership.”

    So, what can the invisible Ms. Soule do for you?

    As it turns out, she can do what numerous authors of how-to books on fiction writing can’t seem to pull off, and that is to provide you with an accessible method for understanding once and for all those perennial words of wisdom offered to all new writers: “show; don’t tell.” In Soule’s vocabulary, this method amounts to comprehending a term known as “Deep Point-of-View,” and I have to say, though skeptical at first, I was impressed enough with her ample descriptions and examples of the technique to make it all the way through. Usually I find how-to books on writing boring and ultimately unhelpful. I prefer more indirect approaches, such as Stephen King’s memoir, “On Writing.” But this one is different and caught me off guard with its battery of examples. Essentially, the book is one long list of contrasts between sentences that “show” verses ones that “tell,” all arranged by category. My one criticism is that no accompanying PDF file is included with the book. Such is life. I have a feeling that I will be listening to this one again soon.

    Although Soule’s name may not be on everybody’s lips just yet, her writing advice is logical, accessible, and certainly worth your time. Give this one a listen.

    "Very interesting and useful for a new writer"
    Any additional comments?

    I haven't read many books on writing so I don't have anything to compare this with, but I found the information very useful in helping me understand more clearly how to show rather than tell. It is one of those books that I will listen to again and again. I am sure I will get more out of it with each listen.

    "A Must Read To Any Writer!"

    This is a FANTASTIC resource for character development and emotion. I am not a writer but am a great fan of a well written book and I found this book fascinating and am recommending it to my writer friends. This book is an essential toolkit to write books that are more engrossing and captivating. Even for a non-writer it is fascinating listening.

    "Not Just For Fiction"

    This is an excellent book for any writer...fiction or non-fiction. Really any storyteller. Same logic applies to writing speeches for that matter. Loaded with copious examples of shallow and then re-written with 'deep point of view.' Her basic mantra...show us don't tell us.
    Narrator did an excellent job in helping to accentuate the difference in the examples. Realistically though, a narrator, the verbal story teller, can help to mitigate some of the shallow point of view in the reading and this narrator demonstrated that well.

    A great introduction to improving one's writing skills. I remember learning this when I was younger so it was a great way to build upon those skills. I loved the examples and character development.
