  1. Thank you so much, Joan! I will definitely take advantage of this free critique. Congratulations to all the other winners too! You are in for a treat! Joan has lots of giveaways. If you didn’t win this time, try again. You will be glad you did.


    • Dear Linda,
      You are very welcome. Thank you for reading and posting comments to my blog. You are a blessing to me. I look forward to reading your manuscript!

  2. Thank you, Joan.

    I recently sent you a draft of a manuscript. It will either be cut back for a picture book, or stay this length as an early reader.

    Please use this manuscript for your critique. I look forward to your view.




    • Dear Janis,
      You are very welcome. Thank you for writing. I’ll gladly use the manuscript you sent me for your free critique. I look forward to reading it. I just sent Edit 5 of my Elder Care Guide off so I can focus on other fun things.

      Celebrate you
      Never Give Up

  5. Joan,
    Thank you so much for the free critique. Your recommendations showed me ways to trim some words. You also awarded me blue ribbon passages–ones you especially liked. Your critique boosted my confidence and has me ready to submit to a publisher or agent, after making minor changes. Thanks again.


    • Dear Linda,
      Thank you for writing. You are very welcome for the free critique. I’m glad my recommendations showed you how to trim your words. I’m so thankful that my blue ribbon passages and my suggestions boosted your confidence and has you ready to submit to a publisher or agent – after you make a few minor changes. Go, Linda, Go. I am proud of you and all you have accomplished! Pub Sub!
