Come celebrate with us!

The much-anticipated The Pointless Rules of English and How to Follow Them is dropping into the world next week, and we’d love you to join us for the launch – and its one-week birthday!

On Saturday 15th September, join both authors in London at the Poetry Cafe from 3pm to 6pm. You can buy your copy of the book, hot off the press, and hang out with other grammar lovers. Entry is completely free, and food and drink will be available to purchase. We’d love for you to click ‘Going’ on our Facebook event so we know we’re bringing enough books!

On Saturday 22nd September, Lindsey Williams will be celebrating the book’s one-week birthday at the Crompton’s Bar and Tea Lounge at The Britannia Hotel Manchester from 3pm to 6pm. If you didn’t get the book in London, now’s your chance. Some snacks will be provided, and food and drink will be available for purchase. Please let us know if you’ll be there by clicking ‘Going’ on this Facebook event.

Also on Saturday 22nd September, M. Amelia Eikli will be celebrating the book’s one-week birthday at The Stable creative hub in Weston-super-Mare from 12pm to 3pm.  If you didn’t get the book in London, and you aren’t going to Manchester, this is your moment! Please let us know if you’ll be there by clicking ‘Going’ on this Facebook event.

We hope to see you at one of the parties!

The Pointless Rules of English: cover reveal!

Ever wonder why English is the way it is? Why it’s ‘whom’, not ‘who’; ‘Jefferson and I’, not ‘me and Jefferson’? Do you long to understand what a future perfect progressive tense is?

We’re thrilled to finally show off The Pointless Rules of English and How to Follow Them, the Ink & Locket grammar book holding all of these answers and more. Its cover comes from the fantastic Jonny Eveson – don’t you just want to read it immediately?

The Pointless Rules of English

Out 15th September 2018, The Pointless Rules of English and How to Follow Them is an approachable introduction to English grammar, featuring a short history of the language and concrete tips on how to improve your writing. As well as clearing up once and for all how to pluralise the word ‘octopus’, the guide takes a look at rhetoric, sentence structure and writing inclusively in the 21st Century.

Celebrate with us

Don’t forget, we’ll be launching the book into the world on Saturday 15th September in London (details to come) with events to follow in Bristol and Manchester. But before that, you’re invited to a livestream on Saturday 8th September with our lovely authors, Lindsey Williams and M. Amelia Eikli.
