    I bid $80.00. I just want to say that as Critique Group Coordinator for SCBWI’s Southern Breeze region I’ve been giving away Becky’s book as part of a draw for our region’s last four conventions and the people winning LUV it (as do I). We’ve even had one lucky winner do a smashup (local meeting) based on what she learned from the book. If you don’t win it, you must get it! :) tk

  8. With plans to start my own SCBWI critique group for my town, this book would be invaluable. My first bid: $90 :)

  17. RESULT: This was an exciting auction that came right down to (and slightly past) the buzzer! As a result, Becky Levine has graciously offered a signed book and critique to both of our high bidders for their official 2:00 pm bids: $130 for Carole Lindstrom and $135 for Cynthia. Everybody wins and we raise more money for Japan! I’ll be in touch later today with details on how to make your donations to UNICEF and where to send the receipts.
