Testimonials for Services of Frances S. Brown, MFA
For RWA: Frances S. Brown served as judge for a recent past RITA Awards.
From Erin Bevan, multi-published author of Cupid’s Angels (Soul Mate Publishing) and The Ranch Hand (The Wild Rose Press):
“-Pure Gold. There aren't enough amazing words I can say about Frances S. Brown and her critiques. A story that was just "okay" and got me several rejections, now sparkles and shines thanks to Fran's help. I have found my partner for life. Anytime she doesn't like how something is reading, she's quick to point out the flaw and even faster to offer plenty of advice on how to make my story better. I'll never let another word go to an editor without getting Fran's help first.”
From Renee Doboy, writing as Linette Dubois:
“I have to thank you for your amazing critiques on my submission the PYHIAB (Put Your Heart In A Book, New Jersey chapter of RWA) contest - I got so much out of your suggestions…I'm very grateful that you took the time to give such helpful and complimentary feedback.... I hope to meet you sometime, but for now, just know how incredibly grateful I am!”
From Karen DeJong
2015 Emerald City Writers Conference Chair and Emerald City Opener Chair:
“To Whom It May Concern:
Frances Susanne Brown was an active participant as a judge in the 2015 Emerald City Opener, a contest for unpublished writers. She judged a total of nine entries in both Contemporary Romance and Romantic Suspense categories. Her scores were on par with other judges.”
From Beth Seeber, Contest Coordinator for CTRWA’s NERA (New England Reader’s Award) Contest:
“Frances judged four entries in the Paranormal Category for the NERA. Entrants were required to send the first 15 pages of their manuscript and were judged on characterization, plot, and their storytelling ability.
Frances critiqued each entry with honesty and scored them fairly while leaving encouraging comments for the writer on how to improve their story. I highly recommend her for critiquing services.”
For production of book trailers, from Gail Ingis, author of Indigo Sky (Soul Mate Publishing):
“Frances Brown knows how to create book trailers for however you see your dream. She is efficient, knows how to write prose to fit your story, understands design, and is a pleasure to have on your team. Frances knows how to use all those positive adjectives to make your story sell, using a trailer as the sales medium.
I highly recommend Frances Brown for book trailer production.”
