Each May for the last four years, I've hit the Brenda Novak Auction almost daily, like they were selling crack-laced romance novels and dark chocolate-dipped critiques. I actually won twice, which rocked. Obviously, I've been a big fan.Writers and readers converging for a good cause? Sign me up.
When Entangled decided to put together a huge group of donations for the auction, I was stoked. I immediately jumped on that and donated a full manuscript critique. Excited to participate? Me? Maybe.
Okay, yes. In fact, I'm so excited, I think I'll sweeten the pot and add a 30-minute phone call or a set of e-mail volleys to follow up with questions, brainstorming, or whatever. This is in addition to the critique, which is like a first pass edit (usually a minimum of eight pages, single-spaced).
I hope you've all ogled the offerings over there. The auction is for an amazing cause, and there are some wonderful opportunities. The "Editor Evaluations" have listings that will allow winners to skip to the head of the slush pile, and there are awesome agents offering up their own listings.
The Entangled editors are listed under the Entangled category. If you're interested, we're offering critiques (rather than just evaluating submissions), and they're all a steal...for now. ;)
Leave a comment here to say you've ogled the Entangled page, and I'll send one of our new mass trade paperbacks to a random commenter.
And for faster access to the amazing listings, behold! I give you links.
