It’s great advice to look them up first. Over a year ago, I took an online writing class. I kept thinking how the advice and homework seemed completely opposite of what I’ve read before. Finally, I looked up the instructor and discovered she only wrote how-to books published on Lulu. Discovered her pen name too, which the only book she wrote under it was self published by her. I’m not saying that self publishing means anyone is a bad writer, but if you’re doing how-to books on writing shouldn’t have some proof that you know what you’re talking about? I bought the book under her pen name. Found it full of mistakes, spelling and grammar. Plus, she didn’t use anything close to what she taught in the class.

The book you mentioned sounds interesting. I’ll look it up.
