Worth your time.

Steve does an excellent job presenting his work with clear explanations and examples along the way. I gave him five stars because it’s very easy to understand, educational, and extremely practical. As a beginning author, I plan to go back and do the whole book over with pencil and paper. This first time around I wanted to just listen. Now I’m going back, using this book as a guide along with his online classes. Steve’s online classes through Writing Academy are educational and inspiring. They show you what to do and help you believe you can. Looking forward to sending him one of my books in print one day! Thank you Steve. Well done.
