How I First Ran Across Rachel Van Dyken

So, when I was first working as  a freelance editor for Astraea Press, Stephanie Taylor senEveryGirlDoesItcoverds me a book to edit called Every Girl Does It. Well, at the time, I ended up getting tied up with other work and I wasn’t going to be able to get to that book, so Stephanie gave it to someone else. (Rats! I missed out on that one!). But then, one day, Stephanie asked if I could make galley corrections to a book (galley corrections are the author’s final minor touch-ups, typo corrections, etc.). I opened the file and found myself drawn back to Regency England as a young couple searched for duck ponds and found love. I found myself so caught up reading The Ugly Duckling Debutante that I had to keep going back to insert the corrections when I found myself pages ahead of where I was supposed to be.

TheUglyDucklingDebutanteNewI think I knew right then that Rachel would “make it,” and I’m happy to say I was right! Go Rachel! Congratulations on your recent success! To help celebrate, I’m giving away a Kindle or Barnes & Noble or Kobo or Smashwords version of ANY ONE of Rachel’s books and any one of my own books. Just Check out our Amazon author pages to see what you might win and then leave a comment below. Two winners will be chosen at random.
