Help Me Celebrate My Own Birthday!


I have spent over 2 years celebrating children's author and illustrator birthdays with my children here at Happy Birthday Author. I have told myself that one day I want to celebrate my own birthday on the blog. However, I learned that it is not as easy as it looks. The biggest challenge for me has been confidence. But, with support from my family, my writer's group, and joining SCBWI -- I did it. I took the plunge. I submitted my first manuscript to the writing contest sponsored by the ebook company, MeeGenius. I was happy to find out tonight that my submission was posted on the website! I want to ask for your support by voting for my manuscript:

Thank you to my editor and my wife!
Thank you to my writer's critique group for the positive feedback that led to this submission.  

With many thanks, Eric Van Raepenbusch
