Bid for the chance to have your work read and critiqued by bestselling author Gill Paul. A must win for an inspiring author, Gill will give feedback on your story, characters, and top advice on how to get published!

Gill Paul is the bestselling author of 12 historical novels, which have reached the top of the USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Toronto Globe & Mail charts, and been translated into 22 languages. Reviews of her most recent novel, The Manhattan Girls (2022), have called it “Witty, emotional and intelligent” (The Book List), and “A charming story that evokes life, love and friendship at its best” (People’s Friend). Gill also writes historical non-fiction, including A History of Medicine in 50 Objects and a series of Love Stories. Gill worked in publishing before she began to write full time over 20 years ago.

Terms and Conditions: This prize is for Gill Paul to read approximately 20,000 words of an unpublished novel on any subject and provide detailed, constructive feedback. Her report will cover story, pace, language and character, as well as advice on getting published, based on her long experience in the industry. Her report will be sent by email within two months of receiving the pages and she will offer the author a follow-up telephone or Zoom call to discuss points raised, at a time to be mutually agreed.
