PubSub3rdFri Participant

Dear Pub Subbers:

Margaret Fieland won a free critique from me.

There were three people who let me know that they submitted work during May and wanted to be entered into the contest for a free critique:
Margaret Fieland, submitted to a publisher
Ann Eisenstein, submitted to an agent
Sarah Swan, submitted to a publisher

Linda Andersen submitted her work but asked not to be entered into the contest for May.

Congratulations to all four of you for believing in yourself and submitting your work. Sharing your experiences encourages others to take a chance on themselves and submit their work, too. Thank you.

This morning, I used Random.org and it chose number 1. Therefore, Margaret Fieland won a free critique from me.Congratulations, Margaret!

Margaret, please send me 1500 words, and 10 questions you wish me to answer about your work. Send it to the email address listed in the left-hand column.

Congratulations to everyone who submitted during May! Congratulations, Margaret for winning the free critique!

3. Double space your manuscript.
4. Put the following information on the first page flush with the left hand margin.
