Another July debut is this non-fiction book by Victoria Grefer. Writing for You is available on Amazon for Kindle and in paperback. The Kindle version is on sale for the first week at $2.99.
As a writer’s handbook, “Writing for You” not only explores the mechanics of creative writing. It also provides emotional support and camaraderie, giving you techniques to triumph over those periods of doubt in your artistic life.
When writing gets tough, that inner editor’s got you down, and you feel like giving up, the most helpful thing in the world is knowing that dips in confidence are normal, we all experience them, and they are in no way a statement of fact concerning your potential.
At over 75,000 words, “Writing for You book” was requested by the followers of the creative writing blog, www.crimsonleague.com. It groups information from the blog in new and thought-provoking ways, expands upon the information to be found there, and includes links to other resources to help any writer, whether a beginner or a seasoned pro.
The book also contains personal examples of how one writer developed her writing process over the course of five novels and ten years, to warn, guide, and reassure aspiring writers as they walk their own path toward finishing a novel.

Personally, I have enjoyed reading the insight and advice that Victoria has shared on her blog. This book will be a valuable tool for aspiring authors and those of us that are published because we all have some weak areas.
