Day 8 - Item 8

From NYT bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater: a critique. Or perhaps more detailed:

"$50 and under for the winning bid, I'll do a 5 page crit.
$100 and under, one chapter (3000 words).
$250 and under, three chapter critique (9,000 words).
Anything over $500, 15,000 word critique.

$1,000 and over, 20,000 word critique, a signed copy of Shiver, Linger, Lament, and Ballad, and a Linger tank-top."


From Maggie's website: "All of my life decisions have been based around my inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pajamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor, or technical editor (all of which I've tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists, musicians, and artists (I've made my living as one of these since I was 22).

I now live an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia, with my charmingly straight-laced husband, two small kids, two neurotic dogs, one criminally insane cat, and a 1973 Camaro named Loki.

I'm an avid reader, an award-winning colored pencil artist, and play several musical instruments, including the Celtic harp, the piano, and the bagpipes. I also make great cocktail party conversation."

I've decided to donate separately, as I don't have a finished manuscript -- as I know others bidding here do. :-)

Jenuine723, would you be interested in swapping critiques with one another? Aside from this event, I mean? Anyone who is (1) this big of a Maggie fan and (2) ponying up 5 plus benjamins must have good judgment. *winks*

Maybe we could chat about it.

Just in case, $610. Where is the "bidding is closed" post??

And to clear that up - I took the last bid at 4PM. :)

Congrats to Sidney.

And thank you -- a HUGE thank you — to all of you. I hope you will consider bidding on one of the other auctions on here to benefit Japan!
