Helping Hands - Part 2

Here they are in alphabetical order!

First, we have Jean Fischer, a talented Author and Freelance Writer. We met on Facebook and clicked immediately. Jean is one of my critique partners, and she's dynamite at fixing computer/software problems. Having sat in the editor's chair, her advice on the publishing process always hits the target. She's also a tender-hearted friend, fellow Pinterest enthusiast, and shares many of my hobbies. I hope we meet in person someday. 

Karen Lange and I met online through a mutual friend, Mary Ann Diorio. She's an online writing teacher, blogger, and aspiring author. We get along so famously that we're collaborating on a book project. She's part of the critique trio you see here, and I value her suggestions and wisdom. We haven't met in person yet, but we're working on it. We've become fast friends, and I can't imagine not having her in my life.

Jeanette Levellie and I met through blogging. This multi-talented lady is an author, speaker, blogger, and vocalist. Her insightful humor has delighted thousands. We've had the privilege of meeting in person for a conference, and our friendship has been a huge blessing in my life. Jen truly walks the walk, as well as talking the talk. I doubt if my book would be in such good shape without her editing skills.

I'm so grateful for these dear friends. God blessed me with these kind, godly women, all experts in their own right. They've not only enriched my writing, but also my personal walk with the Lord.

Writers and Readers: Besides family, who has supported your dreams and goals? Have you made meaningful connections through Social Media?

No wonder how fascinating your book would be, you have the helping hand of all the great writers. I am a regular visitor to Karen and Jeanette’s blog. I really love their writings and I am looking forward to seek their guidance and advise to improve and advance on my writing skills. Of course not to mention, your blog is another whose updates I cannot miss. I would highly value any comments and feedback's you could provide for the improvement of my writings.

Looking forward to reading you book.

Most of my writer friends I've met either through classes or blogging. They are invaluable to me, and make up an important part of my support system. Blogging, in particular, has been a blessing because it has allowed me to find people with similar values and goals as mine.

You're surrounded by three great ladies there, Susan! Enjoy the weekend.

Rachna Chhabria said...

I too have met all my writer friends online. You have three wonderful ladies with you :)

Jessica Nelson said...

My friends have been an amazing support too.

DenaNetherton said...

Susan, sounds like you've got some valuable friends and associates in writing. God bless you all!

Karen Lange said...

Susan, what a wonderful surprise! Thank you so much for your sweet and kind words. You are a blessing and I treasure your friendship. Cant wait till we get to meet in person someday! :)

I love Jen and Jean as well. You and these sweet ladies are a true inspiration.

Blessings and hugs,

Hi Dorji - It's so nice to see you again! Jean also has an excellent blog. (All three are on my blogroll.)

Hi Janette Dolores - I've discovered the same kind of support in the blogging community. Thanks for your kindness and support during the blog tour.

Hi Rachna - They are very special to me. I'm glad you've also made friends online.

Hi Jess - I think each one of us finds a core group that "gets us." Those are the people we run to when we need advice and support.

Hi Dena - I couldn't pass up the opportunity to thank these great women.

Hi Karen - It's too bad all of us live so far from each other. Can you imagine what fun we'd have if we lived in the same area?

Susan :)

Jean Fischer said...

Susan, this is so special. Thank you! I value our friendship and respect you as a fellow writer. God bless your writing and The Moses Conspiracy.

Hi Jean -

Thank you for your support and encouragement. I wanted to express my appreciation in a public way.

Susan :)

Hi Rhonda -

Your average is better than mine. :)

I still have to meet Jean and Karen in person.
