Typos, pore grammer, and stuff

Obviously, the title of this blog post is incorrectly written to demonstrate a point.  MindView Press receives about a query a day from aspiring authors.  We welcome their submissions!  That said, it is unlikely we will agree to partner with an author who does not use grammatically correct language (unless, of course, it is part of the book’s style) in his or her email and manuscript.

So, for those who may be grammatically or punctuation challenged, I recommend:

  • running spell check (and paying attention to the corrections)
  • use Grammarly (They even have a free version)
  • take a writing course
  • hire an editor
  • consider reading:
      • Eats Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss
      • Strunk and White, Elements of Style

Happy writing!
