There’s nothing like waking up to find an email from the awesome Jodie Renner with a critique of my first paragraph – such helpful feedback – plus an email telling me I won a place in the WANA Character Seminar. I am just so very excited. I live in a pretty remote part of Australia and this website has showed me that I’m not alone. Thank you so much! 🙂

Hi! I filled out a form today for the WHW Amazing Race, but my computer froze when I pressed submit. I’m not sure if it went through since I did not receive a confirmation. Can you let me know? Thank you!!!

Many, many thanks to Angela who tweaked my book description for me. It’s not perfect yet, but it’s so much better than it was before.

I’ve been following you for a couple of years now, and saving the information. Thank you.
