Day 5 - Item 11

From Elizabeth Law, Vice-President and Publisher of Egmont USA:


I will read 30 pages and a plot summary of any novel, or a complete pic book text and or dummy, and provide the following critique:
I will provide a short written report and margin notes, and discuss the work with the author on the phone for 40 minutes. Discussion will include editorial feedback, how to position the work in the market, and any questions the author/artist might have about the industry.  I specialize in being friendly and supportive during the call, while nevertheless giving incisive feedback, so it shouldn’t be too scary!  (And if you live in Manhattan I will do three pieces of your handwashing as a bonus.)
All submissions must come electronically.  (Laundry needs to dropped off at my building)

  1. When I wrote this description, I hadn't realized it would be my selling copy for the auction, and I dont' think it sounds very friendly! I will provide nurturing and helpful comments and some humor, will make line comments on the manuscript, and I'm sure the call will be closer to 40 minutes than 30. Good luck, everybody!
