“Be Your Own Valentine! Submit Your Manuscript in February” by Joan Y. Edwards


Be Your Own Valentine! Submit Your Manuscript in February. Do it to help me celebrate the 4th Birthday of Pub Subbers.

Happy Birthday to Pub Subbers! It’s four years old today. Believe in you. Submit one of your manuscripts during the month of February.

Pub Subbers is a plan to help you become a published author.

Here are important questions for you as a writer? Pub Sub is a synonym for submit.
Did you PubSub last year?
Did you PubSub in January 2014?

Today, February 1, 2014 is a great day to fall in love with you and your writing. This is the month to get seriously romantic about your manuscripts and your submissions to publishers, agents, contests, and critiques.

What? You don’t have a plan! You don’t have a clue about how to do submit your manuscript. This is your lucky day. I have a plan that will work for you. There’s only one catch. You have to believe in yourself and your writing. You have to keep that belief alive through thick and thin. I know that is not easy. I’ve been disheartened myself…many times. But we have to keep that little light of belief shining within us.

  1. Hi Joan,
    Happy 4th Birthday to Pub Sub. A tip for getting manuscripts in top shape: Give your writing a good workout. How? With quality critiques. Some critiques carry more weight than others. If your mama says your story is sweet, rate that as a One on a scale from 1-5. If your critique group says you need to show the MC’s feelings instead of telling readers that the MC is sad, give that critique a Five! Get critique from the “heavy weights.”


    • Dear Linda,
      Thanks for writing. Thank you for the tip for getting manuscripts in top shape by getting a quality critique. That’s an excellent idea.

      Celebrate you.
      Happy PubSubbing
