Epic critique & book auction for Family Violence Prevention

Swati Avasthi, author of YA novel SPLIT has put together a huge auction to raise money for the Family Violence Prevention Fund. I donated a signed copy of My Invented Life and a first chapter critique. Many, many, many others have donated cool stuff.

You can bid on a critique of your query and first chapter by top-flight agents and editors, Rosemary Stimola, Nathan Bransford, Mandy Hubbard, and Brian Farrey. You can bid on a year long subscription to YA Lit Chat. And there are many hard to find ARCs, and signed novels to choose from.

Check it out here. Bidding ends November 1st.
