How to Success!: A Writer’s Guide to Fame and Fortune – Corinne Caputo




This sympathetically funny parody self-help book for writers is filled with hilariously misguided tips, factual-looking charts and other advice that knowingly pokes fun at writerly foibles while still cheering would be authors on. With this book, struggling writers can find suggestions for effective paragraph shapes, tips on where to find inspiration (in your reflection, in the shapes of gum stuck to the ground, in a consultation with your doctor), thoughtful poses for author photos, pull-out procrastination excuses, the Elements of Style (literary fashion tips), investment strategies for the super-rich and famous, and more. How to Success is filled with enough almost-helpful advice to keep aspiring writers amused, unblocked, and on their way.

My Thoughts

I would like to thank the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

This book was hilarious, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much while reading a book in my life it was just so brilliantly crafted.

After reading this I am confident that if I ever decide to write a book, I can sell it any type of event I go to.

Corinne was obviously well taught in the topic as she had some amazing tips to share. I loved the way she always found a way to relate writing to food! I mean who doesn’t love food!

I would highly recommend this book if your looking for a fun non fiction book on writing!
