Today my new book releases. With it I also release into the online world my wish for all writers and bloggers to learn to write well.
But before I tell you all about my new book, allow me to tell you a story first: When I first decided I wanted to be an author, I thought for sure I would be a novelist. And I was right: I signed my first book contract right out of college for a three-book series to be released by a publishing company I’d admired for years, WhiteFire. Those three books released rapid-fire fast. In June and October 2015 and April 2016.
My books are some of my favorite stories. Perhaps you’ve read them? The Steadfast Love series? The girl who wears glasses and the handsome, red-headed hero who saves her? (He also happens to share my husband’s name!)
When 2016 was coming to a close, that’s when the idea hit me: I didn’t have to just be a novelist. As much as the writing industry encourages choosing one genre and sticking to it, it’s less of a rule and more of a guideline…and as a freelance editor, I enjoy geeking out over grammar rules and teaching writers how to hone their craft.
I love it so much I wrote a book about it.
Just as when my novels released, it’s been a rapid-fire process: from announcing on the interweb what the cover looks like to counting down until today, Release Day, which is also World Grammar Day!

So there you have it. The guide that labels me a nonfiction writer as well as a novelist. I’m quaking in my boots a bit because, well, this feels way out of my comfort zone. But that’s okay–that’s often right where God wants us to be. Thanks as always for your support, friends!
Let’s learn to write well,
