Day 2, Item 1: Full MS Critique

From Rachel Bateman:

Win proofreading/line-editing critique on a FULL manuscript. Rachel will note in detail any issues with punctuation, grammar, consistency, misspelling, word choice/appropriateness, structure (sentence, paragraph, and overall). She will also make minor notes on plot and character development, voice, setting, and dramatic tension, but the real focus of the edit will be on the line level.

Rachel Bateman is an aspiring author and freelance proofreader. She also previously worked as a line editor for a publishing company.

  8. WOW! What a showing of last minute bids, but I'm sorry to say I have to cut the bidding off at 10:00 PM sharp, so the winner is LAURA!

    Thank you SO much to all the bidders, and we'll send Laura and email shortly!

  9. Better luck for me next time hopefully :)

    Just a quick question: Bids are accepted until 10:00 and 59 seconds, then? Not 9:59 and 59 seconds?

    This is a great auction, thanks so much for organizing!

    Congrats to all the winners!

  10. Hi K.T. -- Yes, we accepted any bids timestamped 10PM or earlier during last night's closing, and are carrying through the same process today (and for all days). We'll update our FAQs/rules to clarify this.

    Sorry for any confusing and thank you so much for participating!
