The Perfect Dog is one of the best short stories I've ever read. Jan Peck has a gift for telling a story in wonderfully edited prose. Every word that needs to be there is there, and not one word more. Use that style to tell a heartwarming story and you have the recipe for a classic. It's no wonder this story is known WORLDWIDE.
Ms. Lightfoot has written a book that rivals "The Elements of Style" in its simplicity, clarity and helpful information. There's no literary double talk here. Just page after page of editing insight. The tips on how to use a computer to best editing advantage are especially welcome. Every writer should have this book in their creative quiver. I wish I had known about this tome when I first started out. David Davis
Deborah Lightfoot has taken sword and sorcery books to a new level! Besides creating an engrossing fantasy world with a connection to Alice, and "Through the Looking Glass", Lightfoot has peppered her story with intelligent dialog and description. I can't wait to read the final two books of the trilogy.-David Davis author of "Travels With Grandpaw"
