Critique Of Your Query And First Five Pages By Agent Beth Phelan

BIDDING IS NOW CLOSED ON THIS ITEM, THANK YOU
Beth Phelan of The Bent Agency is offering a critique of your query, plus the first five pages!
(click on the headline above to see more!)


Beth Phelan represents authors of middle grade, young adult, and select adult fiction (including contemporary romance, suspense/thrillers, and upmarket fiction), as well as the occasional cookbook or pop culture/humor project.

"I am most drawn to voice and emotional resonance in young adult contemporary, rich literary voices in middle grade, and immersive worlds in YA and MG fantasy. I am particularly fond of stories with smart humor and a touch of the bittersweet. For adult fiction, I like complex stories with strong plotting; smart and sexy romance, and female-driven suspense/thrillers with twists that I’d never see coming.

After graduating from New York University, I found my footing as an intern with the Levine Greenberg Literary Agency. Since then, I've held positions at Waxman Leavell Literary and Howard Morhaim Literary Agency. I’ve been with the Bent Agency since September 2013. I also run #DVpit on Twitter (more info at dvpit.com). Find me on Twitter at @beth_phelan. "


This item will close on April 30, 2017, at 9:00 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 Beth will be emailed to the winner. Since the files will be submitted electronically, this item is open internationally.
