“Cover for Joan’s Elder Care Guide, by Aidana WillowRaven, 4RV Publishing” by Joan Y. Edwards

Color me excited, over the moon (Thanks Donna Earnhardt, bright, smiling, happy! See me dance, sing, and shout! Celebrate with me!

I’m one step closer to reaching my goal of being published by a great traditional publisher, 4RV Publishing.
I’m in the final stages of editing the manuscript, the 7th Edit. It’s not the last, but it’s getting closer.
I’m in the process of revising the blurb for the cover.
I am thankful for Aidana WillowRaven, Vice-President of Operations, 4RV Publishingfor doing an outstanding job of combining two photographs of my mother, Ethel D. Meyer, for the cover.

I am amazed.
I am thankful to God.
I am thankful to my family, friends, and caregivers who encouraged me and helped me care for Mother for 14 years and then encouraged me to write this book and share it with other caregivers.

I am thankful to Vivian Zabel, President of 4RV Publishing, for believing in me and my elder care guide.
I am thankful to Carla Ralston, editor for 4RV Publishing, for encouraging me to expand my book from ten to twenty-two chapters and giving me ways to improve it.
I am thankful to you, the people who read my blog. You give me life. You help me believe in myself.

I’ll do another post when I know the exact release date.

Believe in you.
Believe in your manuscript.
There is a publisher out there for you.
Write your story.
Revise it three times.
Get your work critiqued.
Submit to a publisher, agent, or contest.
Be a Pub Subber.

Believe in you.
