Eye Opener

I love this book! I love her passion, care, and devotion to her readers. I laughed when she laughed and was steaming mad when she was angry, too. I rooted for Guylay the whole time because she put forth a true eye opener of a book for those of us wanting to become career writers or those seeking a hobby to write.
Guylay pulled the veil away from the publishing industry. The mystery of making it in this business has been revealed, and she provides a course of action with links to her blog.
