My first ever book review!
Usually I wouldn't take the time to do this but I owe Bob Bannon at least a review for his book.
I bought the ebook "The One Hour Author", started into it and then thought, "I should at least read some of Robert Bannon's work to see if I even like his style."
I borrowed "Hiking the West Coast trail" from the library.
I am a paraplegic, 53 year old woman and it made me want to go hike the trail, so yes, I like your style!
Bad news first Bob, I won't be hiring you to help me write my book!
That book is already in my head because it's a biography, but in spite of the half dozen "how to write a book" books that I've read, I was just spinning my wheels.
I'm not sure if I was at a critical mass stage where things just fell into place when I read "The One Hour Author" or if your advice alone made the pieces fall into place for my own writing process.
Probably a bit of both.
Whatever the cause, I'm too busy writing a book to need you to coach me on "writing a book"!
I hope you make enough on "The One Hour Author" to at least cover what I was more than willing to pay you for one on one help.
Thanks Bob,I will keep you posted.
