About the Series: Busy Writer's Guides
Each book in the Busy Writer’s Guide series is intended to give you enough theory so that you can understand why things work and why they don’t, but also enough examples to see how that theory looks in practice. In addition, they provide tips and exercises to help you take it to the pages of your own story with an editor’s-eye view. They’re meant as an accelerated master’s class in a topic.

In the Introduction, Marcy Kennedy writes that the goal of this ebook is to quickly give a writer an overview of how to write dialogue well, so that no unnecessary time is taken away from actually writing their WIPs. I think she achieved this goal admirably! Every point, from dialogue basics to more advanced techniques, is made clearly and well-illustrated with sample mini-dialogues.

Of particular interest to me were the revision exercises at the end of each section which I am going to use when I start revising my first draft. Links are also provided at the end of the book to download worksheets from her site.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this resource to writers as a great place to begin crafting dialogue or as a refresher or reminder of what to be on the lookout for when revising.
