A 25 page--or MORE!--critique by agent Sarah LaPolla

Sarah LaPolla is one of my favorite people on Twitter. Not only is she kind and informative and an unrecognized musical genius, but she's also a terrific agent based on what my friends say. And this prize could turn out to be a doozy--she'll read up to a hundred of your manuscript pages depending on the final bid!

Prize details:
The winner will receive a critique of a MG or YA manuscript. The page number starts at 25, but donate big, because the page number will increase as the donations go up! Here's what you'll get:
  • At $50, she'll do 50 pages.
  • At $100, she'll do 75 pages.
  • At $200, she'll do 100 PAGES!!!
