REVIEW...
“PUT YOUR HEART ON THE PAGE"
 
 
I love my library. It’s a treasure trove of educational materials, engaging reads, never-seen-before box office movies, tutorials, and community events of interest.While recently scouring the video selections, I came across this instructional DVD for writers, by chance.

To be honest here, prior to discovering it, I was a stranger to Ms. Perry’s works; though I had heard of her. Eager to learn more, and also motivated by the desire to learn how to “spin” a story better, I brewed a steaming cup of herbal tea and tuned in, shortly after arriving home.

I loved it. And I’m confident you will too.
In “Put Your Heart on the Page,“ Perry is thoughtful, thorough and engaging.
Her video presentation is the equivalent of taking a college course, without the expensive tuition and heavy textbooks.

This best-selling author doles out sage advice, timely tips, and techniques on everything from character development, to back story, to dealing with conflict in your story, to creating convincing dialogue.

Her coverage of an array of useful topics for today’s writer was deep, layered and impressive. The DVD format, for me, was much better than reading a print book, because it was more interactive, livelier, and easier to process. Which made it easier to take notes too.

I give it ***** Stars.

  1. Jennifer, thanks for these! I always feel that you are on our side - we writers. Love your series. I actually met Anne Perry at a Bouchercon convention a few years back. Will check out her book. Thanks for the review!
