Day 6, Item 9: 50-Page Critique

From YA writers Jenny Martin and April Tucholke:

A critique of the first 50 pages of your MG or YA manuscript.

Update: If bidding breaks $100, Jenny and April will throw in a query critique, too!

Jenny Martin writes YA about dark, tender, and trippy stuff. (She's so not kidding about interstellar street racers and con-artist ghosts). She's represented by Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger Agency. She is also a school librarian, a baker, and a certified Beatle-maniac. As a librarian, she's a member of ALA, TLA, and AASL. As a writer, she's a member of DFW Writer’s Workshop. As a Beatle-maniac Baker, she belongs to the imaginary Fab Four Stickybuns Society.

April Genevieve Tucholke is a YA writer who digs dark, smart, scary things. She knew how to shoot a rifle by the time she was ten. Her favorite book might be JONATHAN STRANGE & MR NORRELL, or maybe JANE EYRE. She lives in the sunny shadow of the Cascades in Bend, Oregon, and is represented by Joanna Volpe at Nancy Coffey Literary Agency.

    So $150 libwriter (at)
