My books and why I founded Saguaro Books – Jan. 21

I am an author and publisher. My idea to found Saguaro Books, LLC resulted from the difficulties I experienced as a first-time children’s author seeking a publisher. I realized there needs to be a publisher who works directly with authors, excluding agents. Saguaro Books, LLC is just such a publisher.

Prepositional idioms

Prepositional idioms are tricky in any language. Here are some tips for using in and on with expressions of time.

For months, years and long periods like centuries, use in.
For days and dates, use on.
For precise times use at.
 
Meet me at 8 p.m.
The children played at recess.

Some common expressions vary the pattern:
in the morning, but on Monday morning
in the mornings, but on Wednesday mornings
in the afternoon but on Sunday afternoon

NOTE: Although we say in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening, we say at night. Ex. Milk is delivered in the morning. The stars come out at night. BUT We heard a noise in the night.

Some time expressions do not require a preposition:
I went to Sicily last May.
He’s giving a speech next Friday.
My children visit every Thanksgiving.
What are you doing this afternoon?

Talking about the weekend admits of variation:
Do you work weekends?
Do you work on the weekend?
(American usage)
Do you work at the weekend? (British usage)

BBC Learning English on, in and at with time expressions.

Radio Show

I’m hosting a brand new radio show starting January 14 on the VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network. Please visit their site at http://www.VoiceAmerica.com. The launch is less than 3 weeks away. Stay tuned for more information as it develops

Getting your ideas and stories into print and eBook is a fantasy of over 200 million Americans. Tune in to the VoiceAmerica Business Channel every Monday as Mary host’s new discussions about writing and publishing with her company and publishing in general. Among the guests are authors who are fathers, mothers, grandparents, educators, journalists, lawyers, to name a few. We’ll explore where ideas come from for writing these stories and learn how their own life stories have led them to seek a publisher who would consider work from an inexperienced, emerging author.

“Saguaro Books Radio Hour” with Mary Nickum – bringing hope and information to fledgling writers.
