Editor For Hire. Cheep?

I've donated an evaluation of an entire manuscript to the Brenda Novak auction for diabetes research. This will be open for bidding for one day only, May 6, 2008. Go here to bid. (Please! Don't leave me hanging! See, I'll beg if I have to!)

If you're not familiar with this auction, it's something Brenda Novak started four years ago with great success. Her auction has raised at least $250,000 every year. This year's goal is $300,000. You can bid on everything from an African safari to autographed books to ... well, me.

ps. The title of this post is a joke. I actually do know how to spell. Really.

[grin] cheep cheep chicken or cheap, low cost, low maintenance? [/grin]

I mix up those ee and ea spellings all the time. Heal/heel and squeel/squeal. I know squeel is not a word, so spell check finds that one. Heal/heel on the other foot...

That was meant to be a joke, actually. A play on words, a little joke at my own expense. Ha. Ha.

*facepalm* Tomorrow is going to be the longest day of my life.

I wish I had an argen-fargen finished MS. I'd bid on you!

I bet quite a few people will, though. You're not really worried, are you? :-)

Just checked the auction and I can't afford you, not even for charity! *heh* Luckily I have Alicia.

Not so cheap, LOL. I just went to bid and fainted from sticker shock. But for those of you considering, word up is that a crit Theresa is worth every penny. :D

Of course, Liane is only saying that because I edit her. ;)

I doubt it, Theresa. A bunch of us have been reading long enough to know how thorough you are.
