      • Hi, Donna. I'll be happy to vote for your cover. Congratulations for making it to round 3. I entered the contest a year or so ago and it was hard work to get votes. Kudos also for your accomplishment of writing a book despite your handicap. It's wonderful that you are working to raise awareness of disabilities for those who may have no idea of the challenges.

      • Of course, good spelling and grammar are critical elements. But, aside from those, I believe readers want to connect with the characters in a story. Descriptions aren't enough. How do they act or show emotion? What is the interaction among them? Dialog can make or break a character. Does it seem real? Does it bring the character to life? In addition, the story needs to move forward at every moment. Even back-stories need to be tethered to unite the book, as a whole. Weighty literary passages may speak poetically, but the typical reader wants action and resolution. I also like short chapters that climax with a nudge to read more. Write from the heart. It works every time.
