Poor grammar, whether it is in written or spoken communication, is one of my pet peeves. It’s like fingernails on a black board to my ears and I suspect I’m not the only one to feel this way. It’s one of the reasons that it’s pretty important to have your book properly edited.
(Of course, you realize that as I write this I’m being completely paranoid that I will miss some glaring grammatical error!)
Unless you’re writing dialogue and using poor grammar to distinguish your character, the grammar in your book should be flawless.
