Polishing the PUGS: Puncuation, Usage, Grammar & Spelling
Chicago Manual of Style
For anyone who hates balancing the zillion pound Chicago Manual of Style on their knees, Kathy Ide has written Polishing the PUGS: Punctuation, Usage, Grammar, and Spelling. In it she shares some of the most common mechanical errors that she sees in the manuscripts she edits. Don't let "PUGS" errors decrease your chances of being accepted by a publisher!
Kathy's "PUGS" is a very condensed version of the most used rules of punctuation, usage and grammar. Quite handy to own and only $12.00 at www.kathyide.com. I noticed that she is also selling a CD version for $12.00, a combo of the book and CD for $20.00, an EXPANDED version of PUGS for $18.00, the EXPANDED CD for $18.00 and a combo of the expanded versions for $30.00.
PUGS is a very helpful little book and she seems to have something to fit everyone's budget.
