    But that might be the only sale you'll make.

    You appear to have spent quite a bit of time on your workbook.

    May I suggest scrubbing it up and fixing the grammar errors found within? It's not worth portraying yourself as anyone other than the "amazing freelance writer" that you are.

    Haha I was seriously considering hiring an editor (or getting by best friend who is a grammar nazi to do it for free >.>) to go through it more thoroughly than I can. I fixed a few of the issues which were mentioned on a different forum but I guess I shall have to be more careful for workbook #2.

    Does anybody have gripes with the color scheme? I was considering altering it.

    The grammar books are usually written by people having masters and doctorates.

    You probably could get way with a free errors if you promote yourself as "natural writter" rather than an expert.

    I'm a perfectionist. I'd prefer that they had zero errors.

    And you're right. They are written by people with doctorates. That's why nobody can understand or be bothered with them.

    The cost is also high. The average text book costs between $50 and $100.

    And yeah. The average person doesn't want to sit down and read a text book.

    also try producing e-books.. and spread it all throughout the internet, it's another good idea right?

  8. Depends on what the product has to offer. To be frank to you, I'm a little bit skeptical about the idea because you can actually find the same information online offered on different websites.

  9. English isn't my first language but i dont think i would invest in English lessons,because at the moment i am happy with the way i speak/write,and besides there is so much information online,why waste money and time on lessons
