A lot of people helped me edit and revise River Girl, and I’d like to thank them all.
I belong to an amazing critique group for authors of middle grade and young adult novels… Silverweb!
These are the Silverweb writers who helped by critiquing this novel:
Kai Strand – author of The Weaver, which is available in hardcover, paperback, or Kindle editions at Amazon.com.
Beverly Stowe McClure – author of Caves, Cannons and Crinolines, available in paperback or Kindle editions at Amazon.com. She’s also written many other novels for teenagers, and some picture books for younger children.
Nancy Sharpe – author of a cute children’s picture book, If Wishes Were Fishes, available in Kindle or paperback editions, and co-author (with her son) of The Destineers’ Journal of Fantasy Nations – also at Amazon.com.
Norma Thompson – who has written an outstanding yet-unpublished novel for teenagers, and who is deeply involved in script writing activities at this time!
I have more gratitude for a couple of Happy Camp residents who helped me with this novel:
My friend, Judy Bushy, helped by reading the novel for historical accuracy. She’s the editor at Happy Camp News. Judy and her husband, Dan, helped fund the first edition of River Girl.
Another friend, Marilyn Townsend, helped by editing River Girl. She’s a retired English teacher and will edit for $1 per double-spaced page. She lives in Happy Camp, and you can hire her!
A talented artist and novelist, Robert Sloan, read through River Girl and commented on it, plus contributed art.
Thanks so much, to everyone who helped with the River Girl novel.
