The Foundation of a Trilogy

As a Christmas gift to myself, and in a hunt for inspiration, I stopped by the local B&N and picked up Elizabeth Sims’ You’ve Got a Book in You along with a beautifully bound copy of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy for just $20. Talk about a steal.

Sims has a remarkably cheery approach to writing that fills her readers with confidence. Whether that confidence is justified, who is to say until they’ve actually got a published book under their belt.

Asimov requires no introduction.
