Editor (Multnomah, Strang, NavPress)/publisher (Marcher Lord Press)/author Jeff Gerke and his wife are adopting a Chinese baby named Sophie. Sophie has medical challenges and will need several operations and special care, but first the Gerke’s must raise the money quickly for the adoption. To help them out, several editors have offered to have their work auctioned off on eBay. Right now, the editor on the block is Jeff himself. He has edited for many years, so can edit any type of work. His passion is fantasy/scifi. If you’d like expert help with your first three chapters, join the bidding. It’s a great deal. Here’s Jeff’s comment from an email group below, with permission to share. Check out “our adoption” for this heartwarming story, then go to the eBay link and bid!
Christian literary agent Kelly Mortimer is helping us raise money for our adoption.
She’s doing so by auctioning off editorial work from a variety of editors and then donating the money to our adoption fund.
This month the editor whose work is being auctioned off is me!
The auction ends tomorrow.
The work being auctioned off is what Kelly calls a 3×3 edit. I’ll edit your first three chapters in three weeks. I’d normally charge around $300 for this, but right now the high bid is $61. So somebody’s going to get a steal.
Feel free to pass this along to whatever blog or forum or group you’d like. Solid editorial help and all for a good cause!
I know Jeff. He’s a peach of a guy. Don’t miss this opportunity.
