There, Their, They're: A No Tears Guide to Grammar from the Word Nerd by Annette Lyon

Finally: a book with clear and easy explanations of your most common grammar, usage, and punctuation questions!

There, Their, They're: A No-Tears Guide to Grammar from the Word Nerd cuts the convoluted terminology and explains things in a way anyone can understand.

The Word Nerd—as the author is affectionately called because of her "Word Nerd Wednesday" blog series—is known for her ability to help even the most frustrated writer get it.

Annette Lyon (aka The Word Nerd) was given the 2007 Best of State medal for fiction in Utah and was a 2007 Whitney Award finalist for her fifth book, Spires of Stone. She's been writing for most of her life, beginning with stories about mice in second grade. While she's found success in magazine and business writing, her true passion is fiction. In 1995, she graduated cum laude from BYU with a BA in English. Annette enjoys reading, knitting, and chocolate—not necessarily in that order.

Pickup Games by Marcia Mickelson

When Mick Webber gets a new job hosting a college basketball show, he is less than thrilled to learn he will be co-hosting with Cara Jones, a pretty brunette trying to get over her failed engagement.

From the start it is clear the two will not be playing nice, and work soon turns into a battlefield. But as the season progresses and the two are forced to work together more closely, they begin to see that first impressions can often be deceiving.

In this riveting story about the game of love, you ll find yourself holding your breath to see what the scoreboard says when the clock runs out.

Marcia Argueta Mickelson was born in Guatemala but grew up mostly in New Jersey. She is a graduate of Brigham Young University and lives in Texas with her husband and three sons. When she is not writing, Marcia enjoys playing at the beach, reading, blogging, watching movies, and making train layouts for her boys. She is the author of Star Shining Brightly and Reasonable Doubt.
