GOOD GIRLS DON’T

Liar, liar…

Collette Campbell wants to be good…to win Bill Brannon’s heart. But she has no idea how to tell him the truth about her position. She isn’t a computer graphics training specialist; she’s an alibi consultant for My Alibi.  And her current contact, the person on the receiving end of her talented prevarication skills, is Bill.

Pants on fire…

Bill Brannon is ready to take his friendship with Lettie Campbell to an entirely new level. He loves her for her ability to tell the truth, even about her colorful past; however, when he learns she isn’t as honest as he’d believed, he isn’t certain he can live with the reality.

As a matter of fact, she’s learned to work with those curves, literally. As head of the women’s department at Eubanks Elegant Apparel, she’s known for her style, her sass and her abundant curves.

Writing Editing Software

• Editor finds more than 200,000 common writing errors and problems in more than 50 categories of punctuation, spelling, grammar, usage, and style. With its comprehensive databases and sophisticated analysis routines, Editor outperforms other editing programs in the number of problems it identifies and the accuracy of its comments. British and American writers benefit from Editor’s extensive knowledge of both major dialects of English. It finds thousands of writing mistakes specific to each dialect as well as many tens of thousands common to both, and can help writers used to one who want to write in the other.

Editor does not base its suggestions on dubious statistical norms. It does not impose discredited Zombie Rules or offer haphazard lists of homonyms and synonyms as writing enhancements. It is not a click-to-fix editing program; in most cases, Editor points out problems and raises questions rather than imposing answers. Writers do the editing and remain the judges of what they want to say. Editor is flexible: any of its categories of analysis can be turned off or on to suit, a particular writer’s needs, and habits. It is affordable at only $55 for the Standard version or $75 for the Word Add-In version.
• The AutoCrit Editing Wizard finds hundreds of problems instantly — even things that you and your critique partners have missed. The Wizard identifies slow pacing, overused words, cliches and many more problems typical of early drafts.
• SmartEdit is a new, first-pass-editing tool for creative writers and novelists. It’s not a replacement for a human editor. Neither is it designed to do your editing for you. It was built to act as an aid—a helper for when you begin editing your work.
• ClearEdits writing editing software, the product of 15 years of development and decades of experience, does far more than just check grammar. It is a powerful writing tool offering thousands of suggestions for more effective business writing, professional writing, and academic writing.
