Michael’s offer will be on eBay in the FIRST round of auctions, starting 15 October, 6pm.
Bio: Michael Trant is a WA country boy now based in Perth, having grown up on the family farm at Eneabba, before moving to Geraldton and then out to Yalgoo. He writes contemporary Australian fiction and his debut novel Ridgeview Station was released in June 2017.
Why are you excited to do this? I received a lot of help from established authors and look forward to be able to do the same for others
Genres: Outback/rural themed works would be my strong point, but I read a lot of fantasy, thriller and horror, though I wouldn’t feel confident offering advice on works where romance is the main plot.
Length: 50 pages. That seems to cover what most agents/publishers ask to see first.
Communication: Email. Face to face would be great if it is practical.
Time: One month. Nothing worse than a long wait for feedback.
Auction reserve: $99
