Recommended Reading for Career-Minded Writers

This tip is from my newsletter, but when there is good news out there that I know will help my writing friends, well, what can I do but shout it out--as often as possible!  Anyone who wants to subscribe to my SharingwithWriters newsletter can do so on my Web site; the subscription form is in the upper left corner of almost every page.

Favorite Tip: June Casagrande is my favorite grammar guru and former student at UCLA and she has her third grammar book coming out on April 15th.   It is The best punctuation book, period. Yes, no caps. And the title includes the punctuation. It's published by Ten Speed.
June also writes a syndicated column for newspapers, A Word Please. AND she gave me blurbs for my The Frugal Editor, both the first edition and the newly released Kindle version of the second. I think I’m as excited as she is about this. Go by her buy page on Amazon and at least add her book to your wish list. It’s a way to support fellow authors.
