Writing your opus, you may have encountered myriad questions about imperfect areas that you stumble across in the composition. The thoroughly explained tips offered in Write it Right – Tips for Authors clarify these worrisome issues, instead of simply taking a chance they’ll be acceptable.
These thorough and often humorous tips were written in response to author queries for articles that explain various problematic aspects, including:

- Preparing your manuscript for submission
- Your public image
If your writing hasn’t been perfectly smooth, you’ll find answers to your questions in Write it Right – Tips for Authors.
5 Star Review on Amazon UK: Mary Deal has clearly worked extremely hard in putting together this volume of tips and advice for authors, both those aspiring to succeed in their early careers and those who are, shall we say, a little longer in the tooth when it comes to the writing business.
It’s true that nobody has all the answers to what makes a successful writer, but with her years of experience as an author behind her, Ms. Deal is able to give constructive advice, while at the same time, managing to highlight some of the pitfalls awaiting the unwary.
It’s not a short read, and is best absorbed in what each reader finds to be comfortable stages, in order to get the best from the book. Unlike a lot of ‘how to’ books, it’s never dull and boring, and makes for an interesting read, whether you happen to be a published author, or someone just setting out on the path of expectancy, hoping to be a bestselling author of the future.
From The Author: Write It Right – Tips for Authors is a compilation of articles I have written. On Kauai in Hawaii, I had my own newspaper column for writers. It was titled, Write It Write. Authors and writers have always asked for clarification of certain problems areas in their writing. I would send my instruction to them. Then I decided more people should see this information, and so, my column began.
But that wasn’t the end of it. I decided to put many of my articles together in book form and Write It Right – Tips for Authors was born. I have many more articles and am thinking about publishing a second volume. But first, I must finish the two books I’m presently writing.
I encourage anyone with questions to freely contact me. If I can clarify their writing dilemma, we both win.
