100-Page Critique from Super-Awesome Agent Natalie Lakosil of Bradford Literary


Natalie Fischer Lakosil is an Associate Agent at Bradford Literary with lots of good buzz on the internet, both for her deals and for how much her clients love her.


She blogs at Adventures in Agentland and there's a great interview with her on Brenda Drake's site (includes a roundup of other interviews and web sightings).

Here's a blurb on what catches Natalie's eye, from her Bradford Literary profile:

"Natalie’s interests include talented, hard-working new authors with a fresh, unique voice and hook. Her specialty is commercial fiction, with an emphasis in children’s literature (from picture book-teen), romance (contemporary, paranormal and historical), upmarket women’s fiction and select nonfiction. Specific likes include historical, multi-cultural, paranormal, sci-fi/fantasy, gritty, thrilling and darker contemporary novels, middle grade with heart, and short, quirky picture books. She is always drawn to an open and positive attitude in an author, good grammar, and fantastical, engaging and sexy plots."

And Natalie was oh-so-generous with her donation of a 100-page critique of your manuscript!

This item will close on May 14, 2012, at 11:00 PM EST. Any bids placed after that time stamp will not be honored. Once the auction closes and payment from the highest bidder is confirmed, instructions on how to send your pages to Natalie will be emailed to the winner. Since the files will be submitted electronically, this item is open internationally.

Is there a time limit for the winner to send pages for a new WIP?

Good question--it didn't come up when she offered the crit, so let me ask her and get back to you.

Angelica R. Jackson said...

She says no time limit, so if you need to polish up a WIP that's okay!

Hi Angelica, Hello from Hong Kong! I'm a little confused about my time stamp - it's 10pm on the East Coast now right? Even though it's a sunny morning here! Thanks, Kristina
