Friday Fix™: Grammar Girl talks dirty …

[img_assist|nid=2767|title=|desc=|link=none|align=undefined|width=100|height=100]

Yes, the title of this episode of BLOODCAST is totally misleading. Well, it is sorta true. The world-famous Grammar Girl recently talked about cursing in books, when to remove the cursing and how to handle swear words in general. Her example? THE ROOKIE, and the changes from the potty-mouth version to the young adult version. This is the first time ever that Grammar Girl has been bleeped. If you’re familiar with her work, it sounds hysterical. If you’re not familiar with her, you’re missing a very informative podcast. So no new fiction here, but it it’s short and a lot of fun. Enjoy!

EPISODE SPONSOR: AUTHORBOOTCAMP.COM

Book stores closing, chains folding, publishers making mass layoffs — the publishing industry is in a downturn. That means fewer new authors get signed. The days of sitting in your ivory author tower are over. You have to prove that you can build that audience and earn a publishing deal.

This class covers podcasting and social media for authors, taught by authors that have used the skills to land deals with major publishers. We don’t just pretend to be experts, we found success and will teach you the same skills.

    GG is one of my favorite podcasts!

    And hearing her read a string of bad words is great. Scott must have huge influence to sway GG like this!

    For sure

    I just listened to it again and it was so much better the second time around! 

    I think she should read the next episode of The Crypt! I’d probably pee myself laughing!

    I keep listening to it

    And I keep laughing. That second stint where she’s bleeped every fourth word? Killing me.

  9. Finaldrive

    Great Short!!

    That was so funny listening to Grammar Girl reading The Rookie. Such a gentle voice!
