Nothing says 'serious author' more than a polished, well-presented manuscript that is spell checked, punctuation and grammar checked within an inch of its life!
Being writers ourselves, we at HellBound Books know full well that writers make the worst editors, especially when it comes to their own work. So, we have put together the HBB Guide to Grammar - a guide to the most common mistakes that we see in submissions. Please download yourself a copy, and go through it with your manuscript in hand, it could make the difference between acceptance and rejection!
