I wanted to share with you a new find on the internet. I have an amazing friend who helps me edit my work, but there are always things which escape the human eyes. I noticed some small errors in the Wicked Magic manuscript so I was looking for a grammar program online. I found Ginger. Ginger is free if you download the basic edition. So, what is Ginger?
Ginger is a typing program which focuses on grammar errors and highlights them, offering a suggested change. The program is super simple. You just open it and start typing. Or copy and paste. You can write a little or a lot. It can also be downloaded as a phone app, making it easier to make grammatically correct online posts. I would recommend it for those writing blog posts down to writing essays for school. Of course, nothing is fool proof, and some of the suggestions given to me were things I did not agree with, but it was worth it for what it did catch. I love that it highlights things which I can look up grammar rules for late.
I used Ginger to look over the Wicked Magic manuscript and found a few minor flaws. What I love is that it gave me options for phases which sounded correct but could be better said. The updated manuscript has been uploaded to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords. Other bookstores will get the uploaded manuscript in the next few weeks. Barnes and Noble told me that if you archive the book, and then when you un-archive it, wait for it to download. It should download the new version. If it doesn't redownload with the green bar, do it again. For Amazon, the same thing should do the trick. For Smashwords, it is a simple download of the newest book version.
