People were getting help. Here's what a few of them have to say.
Thanks for the instructions
on the banner. I will get that put up this weekend. By the way, HUGE thanks for the search engine stuff. I had
NO CLUE about what I was doing, but I filled them out. Now, if you do a search
for violin lessons in Virginia or Virginia Beach, you get my site, first on the list. Honestly,
I did not pay a dime, and I have no understanding about the search engines. I
really do not know how this happened! So thank you; my violin business is really
taking off, leaving me with less financial worries and more time to write!
What luck to have a genealogical expert with fluency in Spanish give Lineages
and Lies a thorough
vetting! I'm still going through the novel one last time,
but I can tell you that your comments and suggestions will save
me that horrible embarrassment of thumbing through my printed novel and discovering a glaring
error. Or worse, having
someone else call it to my attention in a bookstore at a

Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for helping me get started making a new Website at Tripod.
It haven't gotten too much further because I learned enough HTML that I have been adding to my old site but you jumped started
me well enough that I feel confident I can build a completely new one there, if that becomes necessary. This is really what
I wanted to accomplish.
You were also very kind to take me under your wing and show me many of the ropes as a green
horn at NUW. You are a very amiable and kind person and seem to enjoy helping others. Just wanted you to know I do appreciated

"After years of work and enough rejection letters to wallpaper my bathroom, I'd gotten to the point where I'd all but
given up on ever having my stories fit in the big publishing houses' pigeonholes. Then Janet Elaine Smith turned me on to
the independent publishing world of Print On Demand. My first book, released through PageFree Publishing, with none of the
hassles I'd experienced with other publishers, is doing well and I expect to have a couple more for 2003. Thank you, Janet."
Why should you have to pay for the advice that Janet Elaine Smith provides in her Promo Paks? After all there is nothing
in them that is not common sense - promotional ideas that are so obvious after you read them that you know you should
have thought of them yourself. But you didn't, did you? However, Janet did think of them - and she has put these
promotional ideas all together in common sense language that anyone from the novice author to the most experienced one can
understand and benefit from. I may not be the most experienced author in the world but I have paid my dues - and I can
most certainly benefit from using the Promo Pak by Janet Elaine Smith. If you don't want to fork out the money for this little
book, then that is your perogative - and your loss, if you want to sell books.

I finally went to your site. It is such a lovely site.
I love the America's
Most Unwanted list.
Kudos to you!
Janet Elaine Smith is not only an author, she is a teacher, friend, and caretaker. Somehow
she finds the time to take care of all the new kids on the block while making us think we already knew the answer. Thanks,
Joan Lewis, Author
Not too many authors have the ability to write about non-fiction historical events and fictional
mysteries, plus everything in between, like author Janet Elaine Smith. All of her 13 novels have great story lines and wonderful,
warm characters that bring her books to life. I highly recommend any and all of her books for everyone's reading pleasure.

Janet, you are the reason I keep on writing. I think
without you, I would have quit months ago. It's
so damn frustrating!
