Critique from a Teen's Perspective with Riv Re

Riv Re, teenager and aspiring author, will critique your pages with a teen perspective on your characters, their dialog, and everything teen-related, to make the teenage characters realistic. And the amount of pages she critiques is based on a sliding scale, like so:
The critique length depends on the bid. Every dollar donated (of the winning bid) is 3 pages:
A $5 winning bid equates to a 15 page critique.
$10 is 30 pages.
A $50 winning bid would be 150 pages!

Bonus Prizes:
If the winning bid exceeds $50, she will put together a mini swag pack for the winner! (US only.)
If the winning bid exceeds $75, the winner will get the above, and she will do her best to put together a playlist for the winner's manuscript.
If the winning bid hits $100, she'll rack her brains and come up with something super-special.

About Riv:
Riv Re has been blogging about books for over a year, but she's been cracking lame jokes for a lifetime, which, if you ask anyone who's ever met her, is a lifetime too long. She enjoys avoiding her mounds of homework by writing and daydreaming about werewolves and faeries, and pretending she's a real New Yorker with a Newsies accent. She passes her free time looking at pictures of Pomeranian puppies, staring into space, and researching ancient weaponry. Riv tries to be angsty, but she's just an eccentric younger teen.

Note on the timing: Since Riv is a student, she won't be able to fulfill her critique until July--which is great if you're not quite done!

This item will close on May 12, 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 Riv will be emailed to the winner. This item is open to U.S. addresses only.
