Lillie Ammann's review of the Tips book can be found here:



“No table of contents, no index, no nonsense...just 154 pages of tips and hints, ‘block breakers’ and idea starters. “365 Tips for Writers” is chock full of help and inspiration. I’ll add tip #366: When you buy this book, get two copies, for you will soon have the first one dog-eared from constant use. Great resource. Great job!” -- Peggy Phifer, Editor, Wordsmith Writer ezine. http://wordsmithshoppe.com


"365 Tips for Writers is a potpourri of ideas that all writers at any level will appreciate. Dawn Colcalsure offers a very positive approach to the craft of writing. She makes it difficult to amass writer’s block with a plethora of Beat the Block Tip pointers sprinkled throughout and included on the CD-ROM. Writers will be inspired by ideas for handling rejections as Dawn reminds you of your "guaranteed right to write." --Cheryl McCann, Editor, Review-Books (http://www.review-books.com)


"Colclasure not only knows something of inspiration, she also knows the value of brevity. 365 Tips is more a book of advice than tips. Nevertheless, the word “tips” works because each is so short and very sweet. She uses few words to say much. This too, is so like a poet."--Carolyn Howard-Johnson ( http://www.myshelf.com/writing/05/365tipsforwriters.htm)
