Publisher's Summary

Ready to get on board with dictation (finally)?
Like many tools that have come before it, dictation is a new and exciting opportunity to write better, faster, and smarter. But many writers still believe it's not for them. Perhaps they've tried it in the past and it hasn't worked. Or perhaps this new technology is confusing, expensive, or frustrating, and that's held them back from taking advantage of it.
If you're ready to take the next step and learn a new skill set that will give you a huge advantage over what other authors are doing today, listen to Dictate Your Book and start working through the challenges that are holding you back from reaping the benefits of dictation.
It includes:

Basic "How To" information

Would you listen to Dictate Your Book: How to Write Your Book Faster, Better, and Smarter again? Why?

Yes, as I start using Dragon software

Would you be willing to try another book from Monica Leonelle? Why or why not?

Sure. She seems to be good at laying out things in a practical and not rigid manner.

What does Cindy Piller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voice worked with the subject matter just fine. This is, essentially, a text book so inflection is less important.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Dictate Your Book: How to Write Your Book Faster, Better, and Smarter?

To start with, I will be looking at my hardware such a microphone and other tools.

Any additional comments?

This is a basic primer for using, primarily, Dragon voice to text software. With some handy general "how to" and "don't do that" advice.

Educational and very convincing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this book to any of my friends intending to write books for a living. Having used speech to text to hit 12,000 words in my manuscript during a single writing session, I know this author is correct in her assertion that speech to text is faster than typing. When typing, my best had been 5,000 words in a single writing session.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dictate Your Book: How to Write Your Book Faster, Better, and Smarter?

When she suggested using an outline to ensure speedy writing. That also rings true to me.

What does Cindy Piller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Cindy's voice varied me right through to the end. Listening to her, as opposed to reading text, allowed me to consider the information without having to stop reading.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

There were a lot of ideas, but one in particular stood out for me. The idea of using a detailed outline and beat cards to ensure I know exactly what I'm going to write/dictate before I start writing was an excellent idea. Can't get lost with a roadmap like that.

Any additional comments?

If you write for a living, or wish to, this book is essential reading because speech to text is the way of the future for writers. Writers who stick to their keyboard will be left in the dust by other writers who learn to use speech to text software. The difference in speed is just too great to ignore.
