Rebecca Grubb, Aspiring Novelist

Earlier in my career I wrote what I hoped would be a roguishly different type of book on writing. Now John Bond comes along, teaches me great new lessons, and one-ups a good lot of the ‘old reliables.’ Without any flibbertygibbet language or hot-air-based cheerleading, Bond gives book wannabes and seasoned scriveners plenty of timely, fresh insights, true-grit tips—all wise and all’s fair. His book riveted and reinspired me. Tova Navarra, author of The Kids Guidebook: Great Advice to Help Kids Cope and 20 other books
