For several years after the book was left on my bookshelf untouched


after or afterward(s)? And there should be a comma after "after/afterward(s)", right?

    For several years the book was left untouched on my bookshelf—I had lost my interest in it.

    is the punctuation correct?
    and should there be no comma after years?

  • grammar -

    There should be a comma after "years," yes.

    There should be a period after "bookshelf." Then start a new sentence. You don't used dashes to separate complete sentences.

    You're very welcome!
