A three chapter critique from agent Alyssa Eisner Henkin

I vividly remember the first time I met an agent in person. That agent was Alyssa, and we were at a conference in Pennsylvania, and I thought she was the most wonderful person who had ever walked the face of the earth and may have told her so. At length. I honestly can't remember what I said except that she was very kind and possibly dialing hotel security on her phone.

So it's a real thrill for me to be able to offer this three chapter critique up for bid by agent Alyssa Eisner Henkin of Trident Media Group. Alyssa's interests include middle grade and young adult fiction; select children’s nonfiction and women’s fiction projects.

Prize details:
A three chapter critique (50 pages max) of a MG or YA book from agent Alyssa Eisner Henkin.

About Alyssa Eisner Henkin:
Alyssa Eisner Henkin is a 1998 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining Trident in December of 2006, she spent seven years at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers editing the NY Times bestselling Little Quack, The Mother Daughter Book Club, and The Wedding Planner’s Daughter. Alyssa is currently seeking middle grade and young adult novels, as well as projects with crossover appeal in women’s fiction. She is especially drawn to mysteries in mansions, adventures that suspend disbelief, wish-fulfillment premises that linger with what ifs, epic love stories, and settings tilled with strong regional flavors.”
