Do I have any control over the grammar of my novel?
English grammar is generally pretty black and white, but there are a few areas under debate. For instance, should a series of three have one or two commas? For example: >The coach was black, dusty, and large. OR >The coach was black, dusty and large. What happens if I write a novel using the first example, but the publisher/editor 'corrects' it to the second example? Do I have any say in the matter? *Note: I realize this is a hotly debated topic for some people, so please refrain from debating which example is correct. That is not the question.*
