"Writing Basics for Beginners" by Jeanne Marie Leach

Unpublished fiction writers, listen up! Have you wished for a simple, affordable, step-by-step guide to getting your work published? Well, your wish has been granted. Jeanne Marie Leach offers writing instruction and proposal-writing advice in one volume in her Writing Basics.

Leach first covers writing techniques, research, and editing in the opening section. Next, she delves into common mistakes made by novice fiction writers in the areas of grammar, style, and technique. Especially useful to word processing novices is the chapter on formatting your document in MS Word. She continues with details on writing the book proposal and includes sample documents. The book concludes with a Writer’s Helps section which includes a guide to using Christian Writers’ Market Guide.

Check out the book’s listing on Booklocker. It’s available in print or as an e-book. In my opinion, the book is well worth the price of the print version, but the $5.95 price of the e-book version makes it an absolute must for the unpublished writer.
