Okay thanks both then I'll try and explain why I put it where I did and you can tell me why this is wrong.
I first wrote the sentence without the contents between the commas.
Then I added that bit in and thought the rule was that the commas should be placed where the sentence would make sense without the contents between the commas.
So with no commas at all it would make sense but if I put the comma before the 'but' then the sentence outside the commas would have a random 'but' in it and wouldn't read properly.
Then I wasn't really happy with how it was in the end either which is why I wondered about no commas.
Sheesh - think the heat is melting my brain.
Charlie I have really enjoyed reading some of the 1* reviews on Amazon (I've also read the 5* ones) - when they're about your book does it give you sleepless nights or do you just focus on the 5* ones and count the cash?
