Mehso-so

I have a love/hate relationship with this book. It has excellent advice on finding story ideas, prepping your manuscript, what publishers want, and so on. The things I disliked was its old-fashioned, ableist, transphobic, non-inclusive in general, tone.

That said, I‘m going to keep it so I can refer to the parts of the book that are useful, because I think I can get lots of use out of the exercises Sophie King provides.
