Product description


'With the Mini Style Guide on your desk, you can be a good writer and a good editor!'
-- Robert Fairhead, editor and writer at TallAndTrue.com and book reviewer for Writing NSW

'I believe that this is the first style guide aimed specifically at the independent or self-published author. It's a joy to read and will give writers the confidence needed to produce and publish their own books.'
-- Anna Foster, author

'A highly informative, professionally written and presented reference book for writers, educators and libraries.'
-- Robert Challis, author

'Provides quick, easy access to the answers you need without interrupting the process of writing ... It gives quick solutions with the reassurance of practical explanations which allow the writer to go ahead with the confidence of being up to date and correct.'
-- Helen Gamble, Amazon review

'Examples are spot-on ... It's concise, explanatory and most importantly it's written in a manner I understand.'
-- Fiona O'Connor, Amazon review
