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


  1. You got my vote... and not just because you asked. I think it is a great idea and a great MS. Fingers crossed for you! And, P.S., happy birthday.

  2. Thank you Erica! I appreciate the vote and the positive comments on the manuscript!

  3. Happy Birthday! You've got my vote. Thank you for your website; it does such a good job of celebrating childrens books and their creators.
