Wanna Be A Writer? Vote For This Book Now!

Thanks to the magic of Facebook, I've learned that Jane Wenham-Jones's book Wannabe a Writer? is up for a prize over at The People's Book Awards. It's a great book for aspiring writers but don't risk reading it while you're eating: it made me laugh so much I shot a piece of sweetcorn out of my nose (and you'd be amazed how far a snort-propelled piece of sweetcorn can travel).

The good thing about The People's Book Awards is that anyone and everyone can vote for the shortlisted titles. So, if you've read Jane's book and would like to support it, and her, then please follow this link, and cast your vote.

I found it a such useful book and extremely funny. Jane made me feel that even a novice such as I could get published if I had the right material and approached publishers properly. And it worked for me with my non fiction book.

this book cheered me up no end while in a mood of writerly despair - without pulling any punches. I'm off to check out the voting.

It is a joy. Every time I get pretentious (moi?) I open this one. Spot on, contains excellent advice for writers of all shapes and sizes.

Yes, it's a great book, which manages to be practically useful and very funny at the same time.
