Show & Tell in a Nutshell is a very short book and I finished reading it in a day. It has 16 different scenes explaining how to show the reader what you want them to feel instead of just telling them. I really enjoyed all the examples of how showing instead of telling makes a book more interesting. This is a great book to help you become a better writer.
I received a free ebook from Orangeberry Book Tours for this review.
