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.

Congratulations, Jodie!!!

About Michelle Proulx

Hi. I'm Michelle. I love sappy romances and space operas, so I wrote a book about them. It's fairly ridiculous, and involves alien abduction, a heart-throb mercenary prince, laser guns, six-armed lizard men with a curious predilection for the colour blue, and an out-of-her-depth high school girl trying to find her way back home. It's awesome. You should read it. I am also very fond of bacon and cheesecake, although not at the same time.
