Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982390203, Paperback)

Great story, great plot, great characters, but.... Many instructors and how-to books warn writers of using passive voice in their work, caused by a reliance on the "to be" verbs-the KILLER BEs. For writers hoping for publication, passive writing stings their chances. In How to Swat the KILLER BEs Out of Your Writing, author Nancy Owens Barnes presents a handy booklet designed to assist serious writers in turning their passive voice into active voice and allowing their writing to reach a new level.
