My First Ever Blog Contest!

Did you notice the new page I added to the blog today? Look up top: Basic Editing Services!

I know so many of my ANWA sisters are hesitant to ask others to critique full manuscripts because of the time it involves. Or you don't do much critiquing yourself and you feel bad asking others to do it for you. On the other hand, the cost of having it done professionally can cost you anywhere from $500 to $2000 and even more!

So I have a solution. I'm offering to you my services. :) Check out my Basic Editing Services tab for the whole scoop.

And a contest! To celebrate my new venture, I'm giving away one of my newly offered services: A Free Line & Content Combo edit (check out the details by clicking the tab!) to the winner of My First Ever Blog Contest.

All you have to do is comment here and include this information:
Your Full Name
Describe your manuscript in one sentence.
*Get two entries by posting a link to the contest on your blog or on your Facebook page. (Leave a direct link so I can check it out.)
*Get a third entry if you refer someone who enters the contest. (Make sure they write Referred by Your Name in their comment.)

Contest will close next Friday, April 15.

**Apparently there are some issues with commenting! If you can't comment, please send me an email at raneesclark@yahoo.com

****The contest has been extended to April 22.


  1. I think this is great! I've been thinking about setting up an editing service too (I have a few years' experience editing contracts for the DOT, not to mention my super ninja MS editing skills. Hah!). Anyway, I love how you've set up your services, and your prices are very affordable. I hope you get lots of business!

  2. My only worry now is that if all the ANWA sisters set up this service, then who will be willing to trade critiques anymore? Sigh . . . I throw in my name for your contest. I know your masterly skill in critiquing and editing.

  3. O.O Critiquing is expensiiiiiive

  4. Ranee is an AWESOME editor! Don't pass this chance up! :)

  5. I was actually hoping you'd be willing to critique my writing once I had something to critique. I haven't found much time to write so I have no manuscript to offer :( BUT I think you're amazing!

  6. Ah. I was 2 days too late. Oh well. Pleased to meet you.

  7. Excellent1 I'm in.

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
