“What a wonderful resource for writers at any stage of their career! I wish I had this book when I first started writing. [...] 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 for 2013

“Jodie Renner’s Fire up Your Fiction is a handy manual for writers looking to make the biggest impact with their craft.
“Fire up the Fiction is the Strunk and White for writers who want to be not just mere storytellers but master story-compellers.”
