Review of “Write Good or Die”

Posted in Book Reviews tagged , , , , , , , at 9:38 pm by Christine Rice

Write Good or Die by Scott Nicholson is a book for writers and for all others interested in how writers write and do business. It is a composition of essays by numerous, highly-experienced writers. The essays provide information about many writing topics: the habit of writing and the procedure of editing, traditional publishing tips and self-publishing benefits, the marketing of hardcovers and ebooks, and facts about promotion and sales. The essay topics offer a wide range of advice that applies to writers of different backgrounds.

All readers of Write Good or Die will find something they love about it. As a writer and author, I can relate closely to, and I agree with, most of the essay topics. The information in the essays is factual and realistic, and the essays are in a sensible order that flows. The writers’ voices are similar, and can nearly be mistaken for one author, so the reading experience is smooth and pleasant. However, each essay explains a clearly different topic with a unique twist, so there is much knowledge to gain.

I recommend Write Good or Die to all those interested in the craft of writing. It is a kindle book available on Amazon that is FREE, so get yourself a copy! You will learn a thing or two about being a writer, and will benefit from the information and perspectives found in the book.


  1. Great to see someone pushing Scott’s work – he’s great. Have you read his book, The Indie Journey? Very good as well.

    • Yes, I’ve read The Indie Journey and thought it was great! I’m an indie author myself. Thanks for stopping by :)
