La Bloga Friend Reyna Grande Offers an Opportunity for Writers

Reyna Grande with a unique opportunity 

Reyna Grande is offering a win win opportunity for a writer with a completed manuscript. If you have a manuscript that's ready to send off to a dream agent or publisher, a professional critique service will improve your chances. These days the cost of a professional critique can be upwards of a thousand dollars. Reyna is offering the service as part of her daughter's bilingual school, Marguerite Montgomery Elementary School, in Davis. As part of an auction for the school's 2019 Fiesta, one lucky writer can get a complete manuscript critique at lower bid for the auction of a manuscript critique service worth at least $2000. The bidding starts at $200 and so far only one person has signed up so chances are a few more folks can get a chance to work with an exceptional writer for a bargain ( and you won't need to spend a lot of money on a far away conference to meet an editor or writer who knows her way around New York publishing houses). Simply click this link to the auction, enter your email and try your luck while contributing to a bilingual education.

The auction closes March 11, 2019.

Website's Description of the auction and bid
Are you working on a novel or memoir and need guidance and support from a professional author? Are you ready to submit to agents and editors but need someone to help you polish your manuscript? Make your dreams come true with Reyna's help!
A manuscript critique done by Reyna Grande provides:
  1. a fully edited manuscript (line edits, page-by-page comments, minor proofreading)
  2. a editorial letter outlining Reyna's recommendations on how to improve your work (focusing on character, plot, structure, etc)
  3. conversation about your manuscript via phone and/or email
