and hence of words.

1. Common Errors In English

This is definitely a site worth bookmarking! If you are ever confused by those tricky pairs like accede/exceed or notate/note or wrapped/rapt, you will love this link to the Washington State University Web page that sorts out every pair I've ever wondered about. http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/errors.html#errors

2.Visit An Illustrator's Blog

Stella Denomee is a children's writer/illustrator who has a blog to showcase her work. If you need illustrations for a book of your own, keep her in mind. http://inspirationsbystella.blogspot.com/

3. Hot Self-Publishing Market

John LaRosa, Research Director of Marketdata Enterprises, Inc., reports that the market for self-help books, which sold $693 million last year, is expected to increase more than the market of other types of books in the coming year.

If you have found a way to help yourself and you are a writer, you can capitalize on this trend. People are more alike than different. What has helped you will help others.

As with all writing, make sure that what you offer the world is valuable.

4. Passion Saving

Read the review of Passion Saving, a book that looks at saving from a different perspective. This is a well-written self-published book, and worth the money if you think you might want to buy a copy for yourself. Visit http://www.writershelper.com/book-review-passion-saving.html for the book review.
