Yes, that's right - from Ebay.
Ray Garton, who just happens to be the 2006 World Horror Convention recipient of The Grand Master Award, is offering up his very valuable services to the highest bidder.
Ray's writing experience has spanned over 25 years, and he is the author of over 60 novels, including his latest, Bestial not to mention the February paperback release of his novel, Scissors. Four of his books are on their way to gracing the silver screen, and he's written a great many TV tie-ins, including Buffy, The Vampire Slayer and Sabrina The Teenage Witch.
What all of this means to you, is this:
Be the highest bidder and you will be the recipient of a full critique of your unpublished novel.
Yes, you heard that right. A seasoned novelist offering up his services to assist in the rewarding, yet extremely painful process of writing a novel. We as writers sweat blood and tears (yes, I know this is a cliche!) as we struggle to transform our ideas into a whole new world and sometimes the pitfalls outnumber the success. So much so, that sometimes we just quit. Not writing, we would never do that, we couldn't do that. Not if it's our passion. Our one true love.
But quit we do, and we have. I challenge just one of you to say that you've never started something and then put it away because it didn't work, or because you were afraid. Everyone has done this.
And maybe Ray can stop it from happening to you again. Or maybe you're just starting out and you know writing is your passion, but you have no idea if you're good or not. This is the perfect opportunity!
I'm not saying that Ray can guarantee your work will be published after he's critiqued it, and he's not saying that either. But what he can and will do, is take you to the next level, by giving you his opinion on what you've written, an opinion based on mistakes he's already made, lessons he's already learned, which in turn will help you avoid them the first time. And if you get a three book deal out of this, well that would be fantastic, wouldn't it?
Yes it would. So go on - don't be afraid. Get on with the bidding. And good luck!!
