Here’s some of what readers are saying:

I thoroughly recommend the title. I will be revisiting the book many times over the coming weeks and putting the advice and exercises into practice. I was lucky enough to receive a galley copy of “Overwhelmed Writer Rescue,” but having read it I would have bought the book anyway – it’s that good.

~Dave Burnham, horror writer

“I have completed several of the “Time Treasure” exercises at the end of each chapter, and they have been really useful in helping me to, among other things, identify barriers to productivity with my writing and also come up with solutions. Finally, I really appreciated the friendly, conversational tone of the book. Reading it, I felt coached, not preached to.”

~Beth Castrodale, reporter and editor

“What most appealed to me about “Overwhelmed Writer Rescue” was Story’s individualized approach. Quizzes throughout the book help readers examine beliefs, doubts and habits to understand which facets of our personalities undermine our efforts and to learn ways of working with, not against, our natural tendencies. Who knew we have distinct time personalities and motivation styles that can affect our creative efforts? Or that boredom can enhance, not stifle, creativity? Or that making fewer decisions in the course of a day saves creative brain power? Instead of offering generic advice, such as ‘write every day’ or ‘join a writers’ group,’ Story helps readers identify particular practices that best fit particular personalities.”

~Nan Pokerwinsky, science writer and editor

“After reading an advance copy, I realized you don’t have to be a writer to learn from this book how to manage your time. Story points out so many “saboteurs” and the solutions to time management. Thank you, Ms. Story, for throwing us a life ring!”

~Chuck Barrett, bestselling thriller author

    Haven’t read it yet, but definitely looking forward to it. Colleen has so much wisdom to share about writing tactics and technique. Can’t wait to read this one.
