Offered: Short Synopsis Critique by Seleste deLaney

What You Are Bidding On:

Critique of a short synopsis.


You are bidding on the critique of a short synopsis (1-2 pages) from Seleste deLaney (the Evil League’s very own Blasphemous Dispensator of Expenditures). Seleste is known for cracking the whip and won’t let you get away with any speshul snowflake nonsense. She will crit your synopsis for grammar, clarity, dullness (the bane of the synopsis world), and gaping plot holes (don’t pretend you don’t do this—everyone does this sometime). If bidding goes over $75, she will upgrade (if the winner prefers) to a detailed synopsis. (This is an upgrade not a “both” situation. You want both? Drive the bidding over $150.)

Minimum Bid: 


Geographical Restrictions: 



At a young age, Seleste discovered the trick to not being afraid of the monsters under the bed was to turn them into heroes. Since that’s time, she’s seen more than enough of human monsters that she prefers to escape into worlds where even the demons have rules to play by and the good guys might end up battered and bruised (or dead), but they always win. Now, those worlds have made it into this one and you can find her work in the pages of the Blood Kissed series, Badlands series, as a contributor to the multi-author series Cupid’s Conquests, and in several short story anthologies.

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.
