Plum Good Advice from a Bestselling Author (Book Review)

How I Write by Janet Evanovich w/ Ina Yalof B
Publication date: September 2006
I have never read a Janet Evanovich novel yet I bought How I Write because I was curious to know the "secrets of a bestselling author". However these secrets aren't really secrets at all, it's just good advice with excellent examples from her previous works.

Much of the instructional stuff I've heard before (school, writing panels, conferences, writing books, etc...), but what sets this apart is Evanovich's sense of humor in regards to herself and her writing. Much like her Stephanie Plum character this book is mainstream and likable with a down-to-earth approach.
