For Writing Aficionados from All Walks of Life This book is based on a simple but powerful observation: Students and young professionals who develop outstanding writing skills do so primarily by mastering a limited number of the most important writing principles, which they use over and over again. This statement begs the question: What are these recurring principles? The answer to this question is the basis of this material. "The Little Red Writing Book" is especially suitable for high school students wanting to master the basics of expository writing. It is also suitable for college students seeking a review of basic writing skills. A wealth of examples, charts, and engaging exercises makes this book an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to master those skills that will make a good writer even better. Brandon Royal is an award-winning writer whose educational authorship includes "The Little Gold Grammar Book, The Little Red Writing Book Deluxe Edition, The Little Green Math Book, The Little Blue Reasoning Book, " and "Reasoning with Numbers." During his tenure working in Hong Kong for US-based Kaplan Educational Centers a Washington Post subsidiary and the largest test-preparation organization in the world Brandon honed his theories of teaching and education and developed a set of key learning principles to help define the basics of writing, grammar, math, and reasoning. A Canadian by birth and graduate of the University of Chicago s Booth School of Business, his interest in writing began after completing writing courses at Harvard University. Since then he has authored a dozen books and reviews of his books have appeared in "Time Asia" magazine, "Publishers Weekly, Library Journal of America, Midwest Book Review, The Asian Review of Books, Choice Reviews Online, Asia Times Online, " and About.com. Brandon is a five-time winner of the International Book Awards, a five-time gold medalist at the President s Book Awards, as well as a winner of the Global eBook Awards, the USA Book News Best Book Awards, and recipient of the 2011 Educational Book of the Year award as presented by the Book Publishers Association of Alberta. The articulate exposition of Royal s twenty principles of writing fit neatly into 128 short, accessible (paperback) pages. I recommend this wonder to all my writing students. Perhaps one day writing committees will wisely follow suit and make this a primary text for all writing courses at their schools. --Ray Turner, B.A., MA (Communications), Writing Instructor and Former Educational Administrator, Corpus Christi TX, USA

"The pen is mightier than the sword." and, "What the world needs is... not just more preachers, but... consecrated pens." Christians have been changing the world with their words and their pens for centuries. But, not everyone is a skilled writer. For those who have a story to tell, an idea to communicate or a word that will inspire others, but feel frustrated that they don't have the skills to effectively communicate, here's a resource tool that will help you to sharpen those writing skills. Writing with Spirit is written for writers of all levels and specifically written with Canadian Christians in mind. So, whether you are a student who needs help writing essays, or are someone who feels God is calling you to share your heart with our world, here's a book to help you do that. "It's finally been written! Lois Sweet has given us the "bible" for Christian writers. No writer or aspiring writer can any longer say they weren't told. Lois Sweet in Writing with Spirit: A Journalistic Guide to Effective Writing not only covers the essentials of good writing but provides concrete examples. This book is not only for journalists and writers but will greatly serve college and seminary students, enabling them to see better how to construct papers and exams." -Brian C Stiller, President Tyndale College-University "Not only well written and thorough, but also acutely necessary. The intellectual high ground has to be challenged by Christian people, and that involves a new, intelligent and far more profound approach to literacy and literature. Here is the resource to help do that." -Michael Coren, Author, Journalist, Radio/TV Host
