KidLit Cares: Full YA or MG Manuscript Critique with Author Kody Keplinger

Auction #15: Full Manuscript Critique with Author Kody Keplinger

Welcome to KidLit Cares, an online talent auction to benefit the Red Cross relief effort to help communities recover from Superstorm Sandy. Agents, editors, authors, and illustrators have donated various services to be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with donations being made directly to the Red Cross disaster relief fund. You can read more about KidLit Cares here. Now, on to the auction!

Kody Keplinger, the popular YA author of titles like THE DUFF, SHUT OUT, and A MIDSUMMER’S NIGHTMARE, is offering a FULL manuscript critique for your MG or YA novel as well as a query letter critique. This is an amazing opportunity to get your NaNaWriMo novel in shape for submission – or to polish any project you’ve been working on for submission to agents & editors.

Opening Bid: $30

Auction Ends: Monday, November 12, 2012 at 10pm EST. (Any bids submitted in comments after that time will be void.)

If you’d like to bid on this auction, check the current high bid and place a higher bid by leaving your name and bid amount in the comments, along with some way to contact you (email, FB or Twitter…I’m not fussy.) Winners will be notified when the auction ends and should be prepared to make an online donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund in the amount of the high bid at that time.  After you’ve made your donation, you’ll forward your receipt to me, and I’ll put you in touch with the person who donated the service you won so that the two of you can work out the details about how and when.   All services will be provided at the convenience of both the person making the donation and the auction winner, but this should happen within three months of the auction’s end unless something else is agreed upon by both parties.

Good luck and thanks for your help!

    This auction is now closed. The winner is the high bidder whose comment and high bid are posted directly above this “end of auction” notice. If that’s you, please make sure your contact information on that comment is current so that I can touch base in a few minutes to confirm that you won. Then, you’ll use the Red Cross link below to make a donation in the amount of your high bid to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Please don’t do that until I contact you, just to be sure. If your bid is listed after this notice, you are not the high bidder, as your bid came in after the auction closed. (We still appreciate your support, though!) Here’s the donation link:

    https://www.redcross.org/donate/index.jsp?donateStep=2&itemId=prod10002

    After you have made your donation, please email me at the following address: k m e s s n e r at kate messner dot com (all lower case, no spaces) with your Red Cross receipt attached. On Monday, I’ll provide you with the information you’ll need to get in touch with the donor of your item and carry out the terms of the auction.

    Thank you – again – for your support in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Your generosity will be a huge help to the Red Cross as the serve the people hurting the most in the storm’s path.

    ~Kate
