books

have a proposal read for charity

In a little less than 15 hours, my entry in Brenda Novak's auction to support research for Diabetes goes live. It's a one day auction and the bidding starts at a mere $2. (Yep, just $2.)

I'm offering to read and evaluate a proposal (defined as three chapters - up to 50pp - plus a synopsis) of an unpublished manuscript. I will also meet with the winner at RWA National for a drinks date to discuss that proposal or other publishing questions. Since I know I have a number of readers on this blog who may not be attending, I'd also be open to meeting at other conferences I'm attending (such as Readercon or Bouchercon).

Bidding is here, and it's really easy to sign up and get a bidder ID.

ETA: All genres welcome! I represent suspense, mystery, thrillers, romance, women’s fiction, fantasy, science fiction, YA, and other commercial novel-length fiction.

ETA2: It's also fine to bid for just the evaluation of your proposal if you are not going to be attending any of the same conferences.
