Day 6 ~ Item 4: Signed ARC + Signed Book + Crit + Unicorn!

From NYT bestselling author Kiersten White:
"A signed ARC of SUPERNATURALLY, a signed hardcover of PARANORMALCY, and a query OR first ten pages critique. Your choice.

Also a baby unicorn. But only if I can get ahold of IPCA in time, and they aren't returning my calls lately."

  1. Also, I should note that I have a long history of escalating prizes when the bidding hits certain points...

  2. I Bid $50.00 for Paranormalcy and $50.00 on Supernaturally sweetpidi@yahoo.com

  3. I'll start the "query/first ten pages" at $50 - what a great idea!

  4. I thought the auction was for all three together?

  5. Either way, it's a bargain! I'll go $30 each, that's 90$ total! Of course I'm assuming you are throwing in the unicorn for free.

  6. The auction is for all of the items together, not individually. And yes, the unicorn is just a bonus, as all unicorns ought to be.

  7. If bidding goes over $200, I'll make the critique for the first ten pages AND a query, instead of either/or.

    And if it hits $300, I'll probably have to bump it up to twenty pages and query, right? Right.

  8. Wow, I feel completely stupid now!

  9. I have a couple of questions regarding these auction items for Kiersten before I place my bid:
    Firstly, how long does this auction run?
    Secondly, if we win do we have to submit our ten pages right away, or can we wait a couple of weeks (I’m currently finishing my first year of college, and I would need a couple of weeks to polish it before submitting it to you for a critique)?
    Lastly, and this is mostly for curiosity’s sake, how much would someone have to bid to get a full book critique from you?

  11. Ginny--Don't feel stupid! It was a totally understandable confusion.

    Ashley, each of the auctions run three days. So, this will close Wednesday night.

    You can submit the pages to me any time you want. I did this before and one person didn't have them ready for almost a year. It wasn't a big deal. Whenever.

    As far as getting a full book critique, oy. I can give a VERY good crit on any genre's first 10-30 pages and give you tools to self-edit the rest, but for me to commit to a whole book is much trickier.

  12. Hi Kiersten,

    Thanks for responding so quickly, and I completely understand your hesitation to do a full book critique. I just, well, had to ask. :)

    My bid: $225.00

  18. That's twenty pages and the query critique!

    If bidding hits $400, I'll do thirty pages + query critique.

    $500 and I'll probably have to do all of that plus mention you in the acknowledgments of book three OR do a thirty minute Skype chat, right? Right.

  19. My New Bid (because of the things Kiersten added): $400.00

  20. Not bidding, mostly because 400 is most of my bank account, but I applaud you, Kiersten, that you can convince someone to dig so deep into their pocket for you. You must be very flattered :)

  23. *blink* *blink* Ashley, please tell me you like chocolate, because I'm going to put together the nicest package I possibly can for you. Holy crap, girl. I'm in awe of your generosity! And I think that deserves a 40 page crit, too.

  24. DUDE! Rock on you, Ashley! *electronic fist bump*

  25. That's insane .... Congrats !!!

  26. As a matter of fact, I love chocolate (I mean, who doesn’t, right?)! I’m also so happy I can barely speak right now, so here’s what I’m feeling internally: *Pinches self.* *Thinks, Yeah, this is real.*
