Will review manuscripts - prefers the genre to be Young Adult
Join in the opportunity to receive supportive and editing suggestions from your peers to improve your young adult manuscript.
Sometimes it's a small technical issue, a shift in point of view or that the story needs to start at a different place. Revisions and editorial comments are part of the publishing process.
We are pleased to have Jeannine as our Moderator!
Jeannine Garsee has been telling stories since before she could write. "I was addicted to the Sunday funnies," she says, "and my dad worked in a book-binding factory. He'd bring home a slew of paper every week, and I'd draw scenes on every page. Later, when I learned to write, I'd add the captions--and then the captions just grew longer and longer till I didn't have any room left for the pictures."
Jeannine, known as "Jen" to her friends, works as a psych nurse in a busy inner-city hospital. Born and raised in Ohio, she lives with her family in a southwest suburb of Cleveland.
Jeannine Garsee is the author of "Before, After, And Somebody in Between", published June 2007 from Bloomsbury USA Children's Books, "Say The Word", published by Bloomsbury USA Children's Books March 17, 2009, 2011 Essay "Fearless" published in Dear Bully" Seventy Authors tell their Stories, Harper Teen, "The Unquiet" from Bloomsbury USA Children's Books to be released Winter 2012. You can view her on her website www.jeanninegarsee.com
