“Thank you for taking the time to review my work . . . I’m glad you liked the characters of Megan and Katie. I will be working on making Melanie a stronger character per your suggestion. I appreciate your encouragement to keep working on this piece.” –Fiction Author
“Thank you for your work in judging my entry . . . You were very adept in your comment that my submission would be a great second chapter. I did not submit the prologue and you have proved that something is necessary before the scene I submitted. I am still working out the bugs with the prologue and will have to decide whether it will become a full chapter. You also mentioned the blurb needs work. You’re right, the romantic aspect of the story is turning out to be a bigger plot point than I originally planned and I need to add it to the blurb. Thank you for the positive feedback and suggestions for improvement.” –Lara E.
“Thank you so much for giving your time to serve as a judge . . . and for your insightful remarks on my manuscript . . . I appreciate the time and effort you put into reading my entry.” –Kellie V.
