  1. Thanks, Joanna!!!

    I couldn’t have done it without all the support and critiquing from you, Michele, Jaye, and Jenna. My writing has become stronger from reading all of your manuscripts. Something shifted in the universe that night in October when we decided to start the Violet Femmes. And now, we’re all taking steps in the right direction and I’m confident in all our abilities to succeed and get published.

    Let’s go Femmes!!!!! Michele, you are NEXT.

    Maria…I always thought you would “make it.” Remember…I knew you less than a day and stole something you wrote. The highest compliment.

    So incredibly thrilled for you, Maria! : ) Hope you are patting yourself on the back! The writing is hard, but it also takes guts to submit to contests, send queries, and do pitches. You are getting out there bigtime with your boldness & now we are seeing successes for you! Congrats!!
