What You Are Bidding On:One full critique of a young adult manuscript (up to 100k words) with a follow up half an hour phone call (if in the US; internationally, it'll be a Skype call) from author Leah Clifford. During the call (or Skype/email/whatever the winner is comfortable with) the winner can ask any questions or have Leah further explain any part of the critique. This critique/call would be good for one year after the auction closing date, so the manuscript doesn't need to be done and polished at the time of the bidding!
Leah Clifford currently lives in Ohio, but frequently dreams of finding an abandoned mansion in the south that she can restore. Her third book, A Touch Menacing, will be published on March 5th, 2013. She can be found procrastinating all over the internet, but spends most of her time at http://www.twitter.com/LeahClifford and http://leahclifford.tumblr.com/
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.

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.
