"Free" Express Review™

Do we have a sample chapter or proposal from you that we've requested, but not yet had the chance to respond to? Is the waiting becoming a bit much?

Well, I apologize for the delay. We read everything we request, but we can never promise how long that will take. Because some authors are eager for an answer and some are just plain impatient, we started offering a service called Express Review™ some time ago. It works this way: By paying a service fee, you can cut to the head of the line or the top of the reading pile. Now, this isn't a reading fee—as I said, we read everything we request—but just a chance to "cut to the head of the line," just like they offer at Disneyland. It's not for everyone and that's fine.

But here's an offer that may make it more for you:

If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you know that I am currently training for my fifth Century bike ride (100 miles) with Team in Training and raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

If you have a requested sample chapter or proposal sitting here with us and you want to cut to the head of the line, you can donate to my charitable effort and receive Express Review™ service. The donation must be at least $60 (more is wonderful) and must be by credit or debit card online directly via the website provided by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The URL is

Your donation is 100% tax deductible and every penny goes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society directly.

Within ten business days of your donation, I will read and respond to your submission, positively or negatively. If negatively, I will explain why I'm passing. There will be no form rejects.

Please make your donation online and then use the FAQ form on our website at to let us know you made the donation. You'll then hear from me within ten business days.

Please note that making a donation in no way increases your chances of being offered representation. And remember, we read everything we request, but currently we have over fifty sample chapters and proposals and several full manuscripts. If the wait is becoming too much, this is a way to help get a quicker answer.

Thanks very much for your support of my efforts with Team in Training and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
