Query Critique #5 from Suzie Townsend of Nancy Coffey Literary

Win a query critique from Suzie Townsend!

 

If you're not familiar with uber-agent Suzie Townsend, here's a little bit about her and her book tastes:

". . . she represents adult and children's fiction. She is actively looking to build her list.


In adult, she's specifically looking for romance (historical and paranormal), and fantasy (urban fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, epic fantasy). In Childrens' she loves YA (all subgenres) and is dying to find great Middle Grade projects (especially something akin to the recent movie SUPER 8). She's an active member of AAR, RWA, and SCBWI.

. . . She’s interested in strong characters and voice driven stories: she’s particularly keen on strong female protagonists, complex plot lines with underlying political, moral, or philosophical issues, and stories which break out of the typical tropes of their genre. Some of her favorites are When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead, How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Anne Bishop’s Black Jewels series, and Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel series."

Suzie has generously put up FIVE query critiques, which will be posting separately (this post is for one query critique only)--so if you miss out on this one, try again on one of the others! This item will close on May 15, 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 Suzie will be emailed to the winner. Since the files will be submitted electronically, this item is open internationally.

Bidding on this item is now closed! Congratulations Kristina (your email was above so that's okay)--watch for an email from us.

Kristina said...

That's great! So excited!

Bidding over yourself and then deleting those comments while bidding is in progress strikes me a bit like trying to cheat... What would you have done if I hadn't gone over the 150$ bid? Pretended you never bid $180?

Angelica R. Jackson said...

There were no rules against it so Kristina's winning bid is valid. If I do this again next year, I will add the rule that only an administrator can delete comments while bidding is in progress.

Post a Comment

Bidding on items will close at 9PM EST (by Blogger's timestamp) two days later. Bid comments left after the close will not be counted.

You must include an email address and amount with EACH BID, like

example@fakeaddress.com
$65

so we can contact you to confirm you have the winning bid; if you do not claim your item within 24 hours, it will go to the next highest bidder.

It's okay to disguise your address from bots by using the format
example (at) fakeaddress (dot) com

You'll have one week to make your payment, but you must reply to our email or tweet to claim your item--PLEASE WAIT TO MAKE YOUR PAYMENT UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR EMAIL CONFIRMING YOU HAD THE WINNING BID. Payment is to be made through the PayPal button in our sidebar.

Now that the business stuff is out of the way, we look forward to some frantic bidding to support the kitties!
