Results of the Holiday Raffle!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had an amazing holiday season. After a long day of traveling, I have just done the raffle and am pleased to announce the winner.

Drum roll . . .

Congratulations to Caitlin Manz, the winner of this year’s free manuscript critique giveaway!

I want to thank all of you who entered. There were over fifty participants, which greatly surpassed my expectations! I’m excited Between the Lines has gained such wonderful followers.

For those of you who still want that manuscript critique, I’m offering an alternative way to receive a free manuscript critique. I am a firm believer that hard work—not luck—should be rewarded. The problem I have with raffles is that they do not factor in hard work. This can exacerbate an already frustrating perception writers have that the publishing industry is completely random.

I want to reward your hard work. So, I’ve decided that anyone who can recruit 15 people to join my blog will also receive a free manuscript critique.

In order to participate, please email me at laura@americaneditingservices.com with “Free Manuscript Critique” in the subject line. Those who you recruit will need to follow me publicly and/or follow me by email.

Happy writing,

Laura Carlson, Editor
American Editing Services
