Offered: First Chapter Critique by Frances Pauli

What You Are Bidding On:

You are bidding on a first chapter critique from the ELEW's official Releaser of the Hellhouds, Frances Pauli. She may make you cry, but you'll thank her for it (really, YOU WILL THANK HER OR SHE'LL RELEASE THE HELLHOUNDS). It's entirely possible Frances will thrash your precious manuscript until you give up writing and get a proper job, but if you survive her critique, you'll survive anything.

Minimum Bid: 


Geographical Restrictions: 



Frances writes speculative fiction with touches of humor and romance because she doesn't like to follow rules, and refuses to pick one genre. Her Changeling Race trilogy and Shift Happens series are published by Mundania Press, and her next fantasy series, Kingdoms Gone, will release book one in March.

How to Bid:

In the comment section, leave a message with the amount you are bidding. We ask that you pledge in whole dollar increments ($1, $5, etc), and in US funds. Remember to only bid what you'll be able to commit to.

Bidding is open until February 15, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. PST (8:00 p.m. EST) so check back on your favorite auctions and bid often!

When the auction has closed, we'll email you about your winning status. We ask that you donate directly to Crestline Elementary (payment options will be forwarded) and send us the receipt as verification. If we haven't heard back from you within forty-eight hours, we'll send one more email (check your spam folders) and if nothing is heard twenty-four hours after that, we'll move to the next highest bidder.
