Dear Readers…

Dear Readers…

The giveaway for one free substantive edit of a YA/MG novel is over. This morning I used to select the winning entry. It’s my pleasure to announce the winner: Annemarie O’Brien, with her upper middle grade novel Dance with Borzois. I’m looking forward to digging in with Annemarie… and dancing with Borzois!

Thank you for your amazing encouragement and enthusiasm during’s inaugural month. I will strive to keep the site informative yet fun as we navigate the winding road that leads from idea to publication. Keep those questions coming, and chime in with your tips, thoughts, and anecdotes in the comments section. As I tell my triplets all the time, the more, the merrier.

Happy writing!

The Editor
