A. “Essential English for Writers” is designed to bring your written English up to the minimum standard required for publication. This will ensure that when you submit your work to a publishing house it is taken seriously, and not immediately rejected as being too poorly written to bother with. Then, if you have a good story to tell, or interesting information to share, there is every chance that a publisher or editor will want to buy it.
“Essential English for Authors” does NOT go into detail about how to write a book or screenplay. As a concise guide to improving your English, this would be outside its scope.
If you would like in-depth advice on writing a book in the shortest possible time, we recommend “Write Any Book in Under 28 Days” , also by Nick Daws. If you are interested in writing screenplays,
