I just wanted to take a moment to let you guys know about a great opportunity this month. Literary Agent Irene Goodman auctions off partial manuscript critiques on Ebay every month, with the proceeds benefiting charitable foundations. This month (December) however, she is auctioning off FIFTEEN critiques! This means YOU have a chance to have your partial reviewed by a top industry insider! Or, you could bid on a critique as a gift for someone else. Even better, the proceeds go to charity.
Irene's son has Usher Syndrome, which causes progressive loss of sight and hearing, so she has chosen to donate the proceeds of the auctions to three foundations doing research in these areas.
links on the agency website. There are five auctions for each of the three foundations. Get feedback for yourself, and support a charitable organization. I'd say that's a win-win, how about you?
