Excellent critique opportunity today with super agent Kate Testerman of KT Literary. She’s offering to critique a query of a young adult or middle grade manuscript (any genre). This will be in-depth, like a very special About My Query post, PLUS Kate’s offering the winner a follow up phone call (or some tea, if you live in the area) to discuss the query, as well as some sweet KT Literary swag: a tote bag and a flashdrive/bracelet. So get a-bidding folks, and help Crits for Water finish with a bang.
This auction is open for bids until 11:59pm, Eastern time, June 26th.
