Wow, Ellen! Great persistence and hard work on your part! Congratulations!! Good testimony for us. Did you have specific emails for editors or just the regular slush pile emails?

Thanks, Barbara! I'll check it out.

I loved Eats, Shoots and Leaves, too, but must say my all-time favorite is Woe Is I by Patricia O'Connor. The way O'Connor uses humor to teach the lessons--you'll never forget the rules again! And don't laugh, but I found two children's books invaluable--Grammar Smart Junior by Liz Buffa, and Punctuation Power by Marvin Terban.

EATS, SHOOTS AND LEAVES is a perennial. I believe it focuses mostly on punctuation, though.
GIRL, HERO by Carrie Jones ??? It's kind of on the cusp between MG and YA.  Deals with some heavy issues but the protagonist is on the young side, if I remember correctly.

Very nice website. I love the personal facts you chose to share with visitors, and really loved the 'owl' file. Nice.

Even as a kid, I've always needed a lot of solitude, so the writing life is a perfect fit. Personally, the best time to write is very early morning, before the world gets a chance to sink its teeth in me.

I checked with Carter. She's not doing them anymore.  :(
Hopefully you will be unretired next year Carter :)

Yes, Grammar Girl is great! I also like Painless Grammar, but it's designed for kids. Still, it gets the basics across, and you won't fall asleep while reading it. ;)
