Launch Your Literary Career And Help Hurricane Sandy Survivors

Do you dream of writing a bestseller one day? Do you already have an idea, or a chapter or two written? Then consider bidding on a chance to have your work critiqued by a literary pro, while also helping Hurricane Sandy survivors.

Publishing Gives Back is auctioning off the talents of professional book agents, publishing house editors, and writing coaches–including Baristanet’s very own Lisa Romeo, editor, writer and teacher extraordinaire. All proceeds go to the American Red Cross or other Sandy relief charities.

Here’s just a sample of what’s currently on the auction block:

  • A 10-minute phone consultation on your pitch with Stephen Power, Senior Editor at Wiley Publishing, who has edited many New York Times bestsellers.
  • A critique of your synopsis and first three chapters with Lois Winston, an agent with the Ashley Grayson Literary Agency, as well as a critically-acclaimed author of fiction and non-fiction.
  • A cover design consultation with Mark Ecob, founder of Mecob Design, which  specializes in book cover design, illustration, photography and art direction.
