Want me to critique your manuscript?


You read that right.

But there’s a catch. There’s always a catch. When it comes to me and manuscript critiques, that catch usually involves donating to a worthy cause.




From now until April 11th, you can bid to have me critique up to 300 pages of your manuscript. I usually only offer to critique 30 pages and a synopsis. I am willing to critique ten times that much because this is a cause near and dear to my heart.

What does RAINN do? In a nutshell, RAINN helps victims of sexual violence turn into survivors. It operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE and the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline at rainn.org, educates the public about sexual violence; and leads national efforts to prevent sexual violence, improve services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.

RAINN is all about speaking up. This month I’m leading the SPEAK4RAINN campaign to raise money for the group so they can help even more. After you put in your bid, please, please drop by the site and donate $10. Or, if you want a signed book from me, donate $75. Or, if you just won the lottery, donate $1,000,000. Your donation is completely¬†deductible¬†and goes to the people who need it most.

Thank you for helping sexual assault victims speak up!

  1. Awesome idea! Would outbid if I had the $. Just wanted to know if you’ve seen this book: Reporting the Revolutionary War by Todd Anderlik? Very cool indeed! Newspapers from the era you write about.

  2. I’m afraid I can’t outbid the current bid. However, I will gladly donate to the cause. I will never forget meeting you at SCBWI-MI event at Gull Lake!!! You are an inspiration!
