A signed copy of MEMENTO NORA by Angie Smibert plus a 10 page OR query and synopsis critique

Donated by: Angie Smibert

I loved MEMENTO NORA for a lot of reasons, one of which is because there are references to one of the best television shows in the history of the world--Ninja Warrior. It's a quick, fast paced, action filled read that would be a great summer pick for a reluctant reader. And the graphic novel tie in makes it a good pick for budding artists too.

So place a bid on this signed copy. You'll also get a critique from author Angie Smibert--your choice of a 10 page manuscript critique OR a query and synopsis critique. With her science background, Angie would be especially great at tackling your dystopian or science fiction, although knowing her, she'd be great at ANYTHING.

About Angie Smibert:

I was born in Blacksburg, a once sleepy college town in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. I grew up thinking I wanted to be a veterinarian; organic chemistry had other ideas. But I always had stories in my head. Eventually, after a few degrees and few cool jobs—including a 10-year stint at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center—I wrote some of those stories down.

I’ve published many short stories, for both adults and teens. You can also catch me blogging as part of the LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY WRITERS ( every Thursday.
