THE ALL-IMPORTANT FIRST THREE PAGES
With a new year comes a new Pros on Prose column, which will offer criticism of aspiring writers' first three pages, as evaluated by industry professionals. We asked Jessica Faust, an agent with Bookends LLC, to read the opening manuscript and evaluate it with an eye toward submission. Because the 25th anniversary Romantic Times Booklovers Convention will be held in Pittsburgh in 2008, works by members of the Western Pennsylvania Romance Writers RWA chapter will be the first to be critiqued anonymously. If you'd like the first three pages of your work critiqued, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and the category of your story.

Jessica Faust Doing Critiques At Romantic Times Online
I happened across this while looking around the Romantic Times online website and thought I'd share. Apparently, if you email the first three pages of your ms, Jessica Faust of Bookends will critique them. It says that members of the Western Pennsylvania Romance Writers RWA Chapter get first dibs, but it doesn't say if/when non-members can submit. So, being that they posted the email address, and said to send it in, that's what I did. :) Here's the link to the site: http://www.romantictimes.com/authors_tip.php?tip=994 Good luck!
