Author Andrea Merrellabout this book: Nothing is more difficult for a new writer than finding out the road to publishing is full of twists, turns, and potholes. The biggest challenge is learning the craft and applying that knowledge to your words. If you're new to the writing and publishing industry, remember that every writer had to start somewhere. Even gifted wordsmiths were faced with learning the ups and downs, the ins and outs of the trade. The best way to do that? By joining a critique group, going to writers' conferences, and adding books to your library that will help you develop the skills you need, whether you're writing devotionals, articles, blog posts, fiction, or nonfiction.

Murder of a Manuscript is not an exhaustive study on writing techniques, but it is filled with tips that will help keep your book out of the editorial graveyard. Learning the basics and getting a grasp on avoiding common errors (grammar, spelling, punctuation, formatting), along with proper use of POV (point of view), plotting, dialogue, and characterization will help you polish your prose so your manuscripts will be as clean and professional as possible.
