Does this sentence make sense?:
A highly informative book, Marc Aronson wrote Witch-Hunt Mysteries of the Salem Witch Trials.
or does it make it seem as though Marc Aronson is the highly informative book (which he's not)?
Thanks for the help!
can u write it like this..."Marc Aronson wrote, a highly informative book, Witch-Hunt Mysteries of the Salem Witch Trials."?
sure, it's just that the other one seemed to fit smoother
In the first sentence, there is a dangling modifier. Is Marc Aronson a highly informative book??
In the second sentence, the first comma needs to be removed.
You could also move the introductory phrase to the end of the sentence:
Marc Aronson wrote Witch-Hunt Mysteries of the Salem Witch Trials, a highly informative book.
Also ... if Witch-Hunt is the main title and the rest is a subtitle, you should have a colon after Witch-Hunt.
