LWS member Jodie Renner has won two awards to date for her Editor’s Guide to Writing Compelling Fiction, Style That Sizzles & Pacing for Power (soon to be renamed Fire up Your Fiction).
Jodie’s Style That Sizzles (Fire up Your Fiction) has recently been recognized by the prestigious Writer’s Digest Contests with an Honorable Mention in their Writer’s Digest Self-Published E-Book Awards for 2013
In September of 2013, the same book won a Silver Medal in the Florida Authors & Publishers President’s Book Awards.
Here’s an excerpt from the recent Writer’s Digest contest judge’s review of Style That Sizzles & Pacing for Power:
“What a wonderful resource for writers at any stage of their career! I wish I had this book when I first started writing. You have pulled together information from the best sources and presented them all in one place. … I can’t think of anything important that you haven’t addressed succinctly and clearly. … This should be on the booklist for Master’s Programs in Writing for Publication. … You must be a wonderful editor to be able to write such a readable, but comprehensive book.”
~ Judge, Writer’s Digest Self-Published e-Book Awards, January 2014.
