    Very cool. When I have a first page I will submit it. (And I will have a first page…in the process of writing …don’t know which is the first page yet) Thank you!!!

  3. How wonderful! The thing is, most of what I write is only one page. How I wish there was something like this for picture books. I have not found it yet. Correct me if I’m wrong and there is something similar for PB writers. Either way, when I finish the first pages of my YA historical fiction I will consider sending it to you! Feel free to swing by and visit me at my blog. I absolutely love visitors!
