As I mentioned in her featured author post, Linda Arms White is one of my own mentors, so this month’s winner is, I know, extremely lucky! Linda gives amazing manuscript critiques.

Julie Falatko!!!

Between this month and last month, we’re having a run of Julies. Julie, Julie, Julie. Julies everywhere! Many congratulations to this month’s Julie, both a friend and fellow Brain Burps podcast contributor. Enjoy your critique!

For those of you who didn’t win, don’t despair. This past Saturday I saw Linda at our local SCBWI Schmooze where she presented new software she’s developed specifically for writing picture books. Let me tell you, the presentation BLEW. MY. MIND.

The software is called Illumiscribe, and it contains all of the techniques, tips and tricks Linda’s accumulated for writing picture books in her 25-year writing career. The software is in beta-testing right now, but I will most certainly let you all know once it’s available for purchase (and no, I don’t know how much it’s going to cost. We were all so blown away by the features, I think we forgot to ask :-)).
