That is very very cool.  Just be careful when you sign the contract that you don't give up your writes to print or your characters.

Hi, EWM Members!  I wanted to share this with you ...
I submitted "Touch" (which our group critiqued on Monday) to a woman online who was on maternity leave from her publishing company and wanted manuscripts to read/critique (for free while she was at home). Here's her response:

    Hi April,
I'm in the process of actually editing it for you professionally. Please do not accept this as anything negative this is what we editors do.   In fact your story is sweet and touching for a young adult.  With all of the stories you submitted this is my favorite. I'd suggest that you write it as a novella...approx 40 pages for young adult. We will offer you an advance of $75.00 USD, plus 45% royalties paid based on montly sales.(payable monthly to you.)  Published in ebook format, and possibly CD Rom limited edition format. If you accept I will personally send you a two year publishing contract. I'm back at work part time I can't stand it home.


Wow! So excited! Thanks for your critiques. alb
