THE LURKING EDITORS:
Like last year, there will be some lurking editors, who may or may not show their faces.
How does this work?
Simple! The editors will be reading through the entries along with the agents. If anything sparks their interest, they will leave a critique. There will be no warning! If your entry receives feedback from one of our Lurking Editors, consider that a "win" all by itself.
Our Lurking Editors:
Alison Weiss (Sky Pony Press)
Peter Senftleben (Kensington Books)
Lydia Sharp (Entangled)
THE AFFABLE AUTHORS:
Surprise! This is the New Thing I've been hinting at. I've invited a slew of published authors to join the ranks of those who lurk about the auction. Their role? Same as the lurking editors--they'll be poking around the entries and leaving feedback.
BIG DIFFERENCE, THOUGH: Each entrant is guaranteed a critique from at least one of our affable authors.
Our affable authors:
Sara J. Henry
