for a brief announcement!
I've picked a title for the book. I have a cover designed by my good friend Crystal Leichty, graphic designer extraordinaire, and I've written, proofed, and uploaded the puppy to the publishing company.
If all goes well, I should have actual copies to put in the bookstore at the LDStorymakers Conference this weekend. That also means it'll be available for order online in just a few days.
Can I hear a woot, woot!
I sort of have two title winners.
Lara from Overstuffed was the first to suggest using "Word Nerd" in the title. I decided that was a must, since a lot of people know me by that lovely term.
So that's in the subtitle. Lara gets a copy.
The main title was suggested by Mel Henderson. Also known as my cool big sister. She got on a real title-suggestion roll there, shooting dozens into my in-box. She'll get a copy too.
The title is . . . (drum roll, please) . . .
There, Their, They're:
A No-Tears Guide to Grammar from the Word Nerd
And here's the cover:
I'll let my readers know when and how to order it when it's officially available. I plan to do new editions in future years, expanding it as I people shoot me more grammar, usage, and punctuation questions. For now, even though the first edition is by no means exhaustive, it has the most common errors I see and the questions I've been asked the most.
Quick reminder: Don't forget to enter the drawing for the two books on my last post!
Now, back to my bloggy break (I've missed you guys, and I'll miss you even more!). But I've got oodles to get done before the LDStorymakers conference this weekend, and I certainly won't have time to blog during the conference.
That means I'll see you next week!
(Unless you're coming to the conference, in which case, can't wait to see you there!)
