Your Handy Writing Coach

Valerie Haynes Perry

“Transform these three basic imperatives into a unique D-I-Y writing coach.”


Page 1 of Write, Read, Listen--Your Handy Writing Coach says: on some level, all authors must write, read, and listen. This concise book consists of three straightforward chapters, "Writing," "Reading," and "Listening." Each chapter ends with a useful insight related to the respective topic. Four appendices provide writing prompts; samples by the author; 17 contributions from members of the Write, Read, Listen Writing Circle; and finally, Room to Write pages that are blank until you, dear reader-writer, interactively fill them with your own important work.

Hello! Authors are often asked, "Who do you write for? Who is your audience?" Many authors spend quality time trying to answer that question. Some hire people to interpret analytics and target potential readers. I write for anyone who finds value in reading my books. Hear me? Dear readers, this is my way of reaching out to you. This is what I'm "about" as an author.
