LazyDay, I hate to be a knit picker, but it bothers me when anybody does this, especially a publisher: You can't have "between 20,000 to 50,000," or "between 50,000 to 100,000." You can have "from...to" or "between...and." I know it's often used that way, but "between...to" makes no sense.

Sorry, but it just sets my teeth on edge.

It's actually "nitpicker". Just sayin'.

Oh come on, quit knit picking over someone's spelling in their complaint about someone else's grammar :)

I think misuse of a homophone is technically grammar, not spelling, but that's just me nitpicking... :evil

You know, when one finds the banter about grammar after the call for submissions more interesting than the call for submissions itself...

But the entymology of the word nitpicker is so fascinating!

But the entymology of the word nitpicker is so fascinating!Are you deliberately combining the words etymology and entomology? Provocative.

The website looks pretty nice.

The other thread mentions that they do not post excerpts on their own site, so I went to one of their amazon listings and read an excerpt. Chapter 1 has many punctuation errors and at least one formatting error. I doubt that a professional editor ever took a look at it.

There is a device called a knit picker, actually. It's a tiny hook with a gate like a miniature latchhook tool, used to pull snags in a knitted sweater to the inside and hide them.

So a nitpicker brings insignificantly small things to light, and a knit picker covers them up. Eeeeeeenteresting, no? ;)

Not only is this a fun thread, but someone I met at Balticon posted twice! Such a very small world...

I do wonder if anyone is considering LazyDay as a publisher, or if that got lost in the grammar shuffle.

Take a look at the LazyDay thread in BR&BC if you're considering submitting to them.

I'll agree not to pick any more knits when I intend to be picking nits, if all those who caught my error (and I do know the difference) will agree not to say or write "between...to". Don't make me beg.

And now the derail of this thread can end.
