by Larisa Dawn

I Write, Therefore I Am T-shirts and GiftsWhether you are a full-time author or dabble in your spare time in fan fiction, a netbook or tablet can do wonders for your productivity when you are on the go. If you have been trying to decide which would be best for you, then consider yourself lucky! That is exactly what I plan to type about today. Having used both, I do know some of the pros and cons to each. Not all of them, of course, but I believe I can assist you in making the decision that best suits you.

Pamela Rice Hahn Interview

WC iUniverse Special Event
Grammar Expert

Held: Tuesday, February 26, 2002

Kelly Milner Halls: Welcome everyone to tonight’s chat with grammar guru Pamela Rice Hahn. We’re so glad to see such a great turn out. Late last year, Pamela saw the release of her fabulous trade paperback Teach Yourself Grammar and Style in 24 Hours. iUniverse was thrilled to schedule Hahn for a live expert chat, but she was unable to attend. Tonight, she takes us up on our rain-check to chat abour grammar for writers of every kind. Welcome Pam, we’re really glad to have you. Tell us a little about what inspired you to write the book.

Pamela Rice Hahn: Thank you. I was asked by Macmillan to do the book (via my agent) and they offered an advance. Money is a nice motivator. It was one of those fluke things, actually. The original author (a college professor) decided his schedule was such that he had to back out. So they asked me and I then wrote a sample table of contents and a proposal that convinced the editors I was up to the task. Loved writing that book — especially the example sentences!

Candy: Pam, what is your proofreading technique? I mean what steps do you take to prep the book before submitting it for publication?
