Author: Katharine Kerr

Critique (by Katharine Kerr)

Item Name & Description: Critique up to 100 pages.

Writing a novel? Have one finished and wondering if it has a chance to sell? I am a professional novelist with 26 fantasy and science fiction books to my credit, 24 of which have been internationally published by major publishers. I’ll do a critique that covers character, world-building, and plot development, as well as a good many line edits, of the first 100 pages of your work. Warning! if I think it sucks, I’ll tell you that and why. I’ll also suggest ways you can fix it if I think it can be saved or if not, suggest you try another book. This offer is not for those who want a vanity read.

Starting Bid: 50 dollars American. We will communicate in email, so postage is not a problem.

Bidding opens Monday, April 20, 2015 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern (time zone conversions). It closes Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
