Brenda Novak’s auction to support Juvenile Diabetes is winding down. If you haven’t skipped town yet for beaches and barbecue, check out the bidding on editorial critiques, digital readers, signed author copies, rare promo opportunities, amazing jewelry, and just about anything under the sun. You can find it all on Brenda’ auction site.
I’m offering a critique of query letter, 3 chapters and synopsis here. This goes for romance and YA projects.

Last year, New York Times best-selling author Brenda Novak raised more than $280,000 in her online auction to benefit diabetes research. And this year she’s set the bar even higher. Because Brenda is the consummate achiever (seriously, there’s nothing this woman can’t do!) and she has loads of amazing offerings at this year’s auction, I have no doubt she’ll hit her goal.
The 2010 auction is now live. For writers, there are 60 agent evaluations up for grabs and nearly 50 editor evaluations.
If you’re the winning bidder on mine, you’ll receive a line edit of your cover letter, first three chapers and synopsis; a written overall critique of strengths and weaknesses and suggestions for improvement; and a follow-up phone call, should you wish you ask further questions. Bidding goes through May 31.
There are also loads of ARCs, signed books, handbags, jewelry, art, an iPad, a Nook, and a load of other amazing items, including special promo opportunities for published writers.
