Mignon Fogarty’s The Grammar Devotional: Daily Tips for Successful Writing from Grammar Girl, is a small book that can make a big difference in your writing.

The Grammar Devotional can make you a better writer–one day at a time

It contains 365 bite-sized chunks of advice that can help you avoid embarrassing grammatical and word usage mistakes in book proposals, memos, and other important business writing.

It’s written in the practical, easy-to-remember, conversational tone that is a hallmark of Mignon Fogarty’s successful Grammar Girl online brand. Important ideas are communicated as tips, puzzles, quizzes, and memory tricks, all delivered authoritatively, with a slight grin.

Even grammar can become branded

Reviewers of her books at Amazon.com have referred to Mignon Fogarty, AKA the Grammar Girl, as “a national treasure.”

The Grammar Devotional is the follow-up to her previous writer’s resource, Grammar Girl’s Quick & Dirty Tips for Better Writing, which became a New York Times best-seller.

Her weekly grammar podcast has been downloaded over 20 million times!

USA Today calls her advice “authoritative and warm.”

The Grammar Deovtion has been on my desk for a few weeks now, and I’m impressed. When I have a question, like “Is it affect or effect?” I can quickly locate and understand the answer. I’ve grown to rely on it.

I’m impressed with The Grammar Devotional, both for its friendly, practical, informed advice as well as the example of successful branding that Mignon Fogarty offers all writers. Her success proves, once again, that good information is necessary, but not sufficient, to sell a lot of books, make a lot of friends, and create a best-selling brand.
