As I sit here and write this review, just yesterday I submitted my third book to a publishing company. Kinda ironic, given the topic of the book. I say with all HEART, that Jim Denney has set the bar high on why write a book. This book is more than a read and put down; it's a book we have to take notes in the margins, we have to re-read and make sure we understand the content. Jim's message in this book, is simple--write fast, overcome fear and don't quit. I enjoy the stories he shared, ALL of them resonated with me. I have been rejected. I have been told, what makes you think, you can write a book. You are not an author, so why are you writing books--it's fun to me, I love it and I have the fire in my belly. ALL of my books I thought were instant classics, and to me they are. Jim's guide to writing well as helped me tremendously and I highly recommend this book as well as his other two; write fearlessly and writing in overdrive.

Useful, informative, very helpful. I don't know if this book will help you quit your day job and make a ton of money as a writer, (sounds like a title the publisher's marketing department came up with), but the author's practical easy-to-use advice will probably give you the best chance possible to make it happen. If I hadn't come across the book while doing research on something else, the title probably would have turned me off. Now, I'm glad I bought the book. Excellent advice on becoming a regularly selling writer by someone who has done it.

Jim Denney makes a habit of writing great books on the craft of writing. This one is no exception! Highly recommended--you can tell he's been where all struggling writers find themselves, so he "gets it". Go get the book!

Quit Your Day Job! was a mixed bag of helpful insight and bland anecdotes. On one hand, he does give some helpful insights into the business aspect of writing, mainly how hard it is, and it's obvious that the "quit your day job" of the title means that you need to quit your day job to fully focus on being a writer. Denney tells you different functions of people in the writing-business world, but it wasn't anything I couldn't look up on the internet and find within five minutes.

On the other hand, Denney, like most writers that write a book about writing, gives vague and useless tips to actually getting published. He basically says, "You could do this, or you could do this. Both of them work for some people." Also, a third of the book is just anecdotes he quoted from other writers. I finished the book wanting more.

Sometimes Denney goes too far on the business tangent and makes writing feel like a cold, sterile occupation. He goes so far that he suggests that, to get the most for the money you're getting paid, don't write long words, like using big instead of gigantic. And he's dead serious.

Also, don't buy this book if you're trying to learn how to write. This is definitely about the business of writing. I would recommend Immediate Fiction, by Jerry Cleaver. Not only does it tell you how to write, it has a chapter at the end of the book about how to go about publishing your book. That one chapter was more helpful than this book.

Based on his 20-plus years experience as a writer who has supported himself and his family writing books from his home office, Jim Denney offers us, in his own words, "a combination of encouragement and motivation on the one hand and a bucket of cold water in the face (reality) on the other." In page after well-written page, he presents the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about this often mysterious, unseen realm that connects writer to reader.

The author of more than 60 books, many of which have been collaborative efforts, Denney lets us in on the secrets of pleasing publishers, working with other creative minds, contract negotiation and more.

Wondering if you need an agent? Denney gives you the tools to make an informed choice.

Need guidelines for structuring your writing day? Turn to chapter 5, "the Seven Essential Habits of a Working Writer," and you'll know just what to do next.

If your "real job" gets in the way of your dream to write for a living, you'll learn how to make the transition in "Taking the Leap."

When writing is your passion, your gift and your calling, it's good to know you aren't alone. If you identify with the kid Denney describes in "A Holy Calling," as I did, you'll benefit from the fellowship of his final chapter, "Soul Survival." Whether your personal demons are named Finances, Deadlines, Self-doubt or Rejection, he'll teach you how to knock each one of them down and press on toward the mark of excellence in writing.

This books earns the four stars by being interesting and helpful. It's well-written (naturally!) and puts what could be very dry business information into a format that creative types will be able to stomach.

My biggest problem, the reason I can't give 5-stars, may not be the authors fault really. The title and the synopsis lead you to believe this book is going to provide practical, how-to information about becoming a writer that makes enough money writing. The reality is laid out quite early on in the book. The first step, the unescapable step, is poverty. And not just any poverty, but poverty that you buy in to with a small fortune. His map to success starts with saving up an entire year's worth of your current salary (!!!), then living like a pauper for 1 to 2 years. During that time, you may not receive enough correct feedback to discover if your books are not selling because you are a bad writer, or simply haven't sold YET.

Now granted, this could be the reality. Perhaps he is just telling it like it is. But really, does such a dire starting point merit such an upbeat title? How to quit your day job boils down to saving up enough money to pay your own salary to yourself for an entire year. Nice work if you can get it, but I don't know many people that can store up a years salary in any reasonable amount of time. Can you?
