“Grammar Girl” (aka Mignon Fogarty) publishes her new book, “The Grammar Devotional,” next week. It’s billed as “365 playful, practical tips to improve your writing one day at a time.”
Grammar Girl is a phenomenon. Her first book, “Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing” was a New York Times best-seller. Her podcast is one of the most popular on iTunes. Her blog, “Quick and Dirty Tips,” is a must-read. She was even on Oprah.
And she’s on Twitter, @grammargirl, with more than 23,000 followers.
She’s promoting the “The Grammar Devotional” via Twitter through her “tweet and win” contest. Twitter users who tweet her book title and link to her site are entered into a daily contest to win the book. It’s an interesting use of Twitter as a marketing tool. The book only costs about $10, but I’ll bet lots of grammar geeks will enter the contest.
