Don't Buy This Book!
I'm an editor, so I'd rather you pay me thousands of dollars to edit your book than to pay me only $29.95 for all my editing secrets.
I beg of you, don't buy this book!
You can see why I don't want you to buy this book. With this book you can
- Edit your own book and save thousands of dollars!
- Edit other books and make thousands of dollars!
Of course I don't want you to know all my secrets, tips, and insider information, but if you insist, here it is, the fifth edition of my best-kept secret, Purge Your Prose of Problems
This one reference manual combines the most important information on creative writing and editing books. It's a must for all serious fiction and nonfiction writers and for anyone who wants to learn how to edit books.Creative Writing Tips * Grammar * Punctuation * Chicago Style * AP Style * Format
Before you finish the final draft of your manuscript, you simply must have the one resource book that answers almost every question on editing your manuscript, literally from A to Z.
"This is one of the best writing manuals I have ever acquired, and I regularly recommend it to both novice and seasoned writers. My own copy looks like a case of Post-It notes exploded on it. Thank you for sharing your vast wealth of experience with us in this wonderful work!"
