ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
In his book “A Lighthearted Book of Common Errors” (published by Trafford Publishing) – which is getting a revived marketing push – author Don Hoeferkamp uses humor to give readers a compact education in language, teaching them to avoid mistakes in grammar, spelling and usage.
As a professional editor with nearly four decades of experience, Hoeferkamp has seen countless mistakes, and he has seen them occur repeatedly and without apology. Gathering some of the most common slip-ups into one book and putting a humorous spin on the lessons, he offers readers the tools they need to avoid mistakes in grammar, spelling, structure and other easy-to-miss issues.
An excerpt from “A Lighthearted Book of Common Errors”:
“To say something like ‘I laid down’ is to lay an egg. But I will lay you odds that laying down the law about using ‘lie’ and ‘lay’ correctly may get you laid into by laypersons who lie in wait in the secret lairs of their self-imposed layers of defense mechanisms. (Just kidding!)”
Hoeferkamp hopes readers have fun while learning to avoid mistakes in language. He says, “It’s a snarky lark with a stark bark that will mark you as a word shark and help you avoid the dark!”
“A Lighthearted Book of Common Errors” is available in paperback and e-book on trafford.com and through most major booksellers.
