    From the bestselling author of Woe Is I: A guide to grammar fundamentals that’s sympathetic to the struggling writer and often just plain funny” (The Seattle Times).   Whether you need to improve your skills for work or school, or aspire to the Great American Novel, a grounding in grammar, spelling, and punctuation is essential—not just to make you look like a professional but to communicate effectively in emails, essays, or anything you need to write.   This painless, practical book is filled with short, snappy chapters, crystal-clear examples, and a “playful sense of humor” (The New York Times Book Review)—covering everything from “Pronoun Pileups” and “Verbs That Zing” to “What to Do When You’re Stuck.” With these simple, straightforward tips, you can learn how to sort your thoughts and make sentences that make sense.   “Students writing papers, employees preparing reports, and those who just want to be understood in print may benefit from this fun-to-use answer to Strunk and White. O’Connor uses humor as she takes apart sentences and their parts and shows how each element is used effectively.” —Booklist

    Why This - Why Now?
     
    My muse made me write this.
     
    Just for you.
     
    You're welcome.
     
    Disclaimer: I've been publishing for over a decade and writing for years before that. Self-publishing was started in self-defense against the constant nagging of that muse mentioned above.
     
    Meanwhile, I've enjoyed financial freedom for several years, meaning I fired my last boss some time back. My books started paying my bills and since then have mostly improved in sales from month to month. I live within my means while I increase those means.
     
    The point of this was to do a final "brain dump" to get this data out in a single package of data outlining the essential points of a writing system you can follow. 
     
    And it's been called "concise" and "easy to follow" by my advanced readers. 
     
    What it doesn't have is a bunch of listicals or authoritative-sounding link-bait. 
     
    The data that supports this book is in another dozen short books I've written and published on the subject. (Check the "bonus" sections from and back to get access to them.) Or you can simply look around wherever you get your ebooks, as I probably have the copies there as well. 
     
    I make my living from writing and publishing, rinse, repeat. But I don't make a living from telling people how to write and publish. Generally, I give my hard-won knowledge mostly away for free (if you now where to look - hint: that "bonus" section again...)
     
    In this short book, you get the outline and the bare-knuckle opinion of who I think is worth a damn to learn from. Just because I've spent a lot of time and money on courses that weren't worth it, doesn't mean you should have to.
     
    And there are some wild theories that no one else has proved, but you can be my guest. They work for me. They help me make sense of self-publishing. And I'm about to do a couple of major tests of these, but wanted to let you know in case I don't surface from those adventures. 
     
    Meanwhile, it's over to you. Have fun.
     
    Leave a review if you like it. Buy my other books if its worth something to you. 
     
    Cheers!

    Back in the day before automobiles, a good horse trainer and veterinarian was the equivalent of “Mr Goodwrench”. A badly behaving or unhealthy equine was equivalent to breaking down on the highway or running out of gas on a lonely stretch of highway somewhere in Utah. My sources tell me that most of the training methods are ok, but stay away from the medical tips unless you are prepared to become the poster boy or girl for the local SPCA. Listen with tongue in cheek, and check with a professional before attempting any of these techniques on a real animal.Mike Vendetti, narrator

    Guaranteed Not to Be Confusing 
    Don't Ever Be Confused by Grammar Again. Take a "bite" out of Grammar with No Mistakes Grammar Bites.
    It seems as if many dictionaries and books on grammar do their best to confuse people. Words and explanations are defined using grammatical terminology that is difficult to understand; in fact, if you knew that terminology, you probably wouldn't have to look up the words to begin with. 
    We're aiming to get rid of that and explain things in plain English, using language that is easy to understand. 
    Try it out and see for yourself. If you find these books confusing, write to me and get a refund; they're guaranteed.
