God has been good to me.
Hip Hip Hooray! Joan’s Elder Care Guide published by 4RV Publishing has been in the top 100 best selling nonfiction books in the medical books, home care category on Amazon since its appearance there on April 15, 2016.
My Website: http://www.joanyedwards.com has devotionals, crossword/wordsearch puzzles, and skits for Children’s Liturgy each Sunday of all three liturgical years.
On September 28, 2012 I presented a “Blogging Basics” workshop at the SCBWI-Carolinas Conference. This answered a dream of mine to present a live workshop at that conference. It was awesome. I presented two blogging workshops and a revision workshop for the 2014 SCWW conference in Myrtle Beach. That accomplished my goal of being a paid presenter at a writing conference. My present goal is to be hired as the top key-note speaker for a conference.
In February 2012 I entered the Amazon contest for Young Adult Novels. I won to the second level with the Pitch for my Historical Fiction book, Immigrant Heart. It needs another run through of edits and I’ll submit it.
In 2013 I wrote a musical screenplay with 18 songs, “Against All Odds.” After writing freestyle, I thought a Screenwriting course might help. In 2013-2014 I took Hal Croasmun’s ProSeries 48 Screenwriting Course from Screenwriting U – Six months of great lessons. And I have another screenplay, a romantic comedy, The Perfect Couple. After I finish my elder care guide last edits, I’ll revise these screenplays and submit them.
Thanks for visiting my Never Give Up blog.
