NOTICE: Contest extended until August 17!
It's time for a QT contest! Woo hoo! This one is for category romance only, both adult and YA.
Heather Howland, associate publisher and editorial director at Entangled Publishing LLC, has agreed to take a look at the first 100 words of manuscripts and brief (no more than a three-sentence long) pitches for category romance novels. Completed manuscripts are preferred, but partial works will be considered. Please read the descriptions of the imprints below and indicate under which imprint you believe your book falls when you fill out the form on contest day.
Entries will not be posted and made public. The form will be sent directly to the judge.
The number of winners whose material is requested for consideration will be determined by the number and quality of submissions.
This is a great opportunity to land that deal, so polish up those first 100 words and brief book blurb.
More information regarding contest specifics will be posted next Wednesday. It will open for entries Wednesday, August 13 at 8:00 am Eastern time, and end at midnight Eastern time Sunday, August 17.
Please review the following descriptions to see if your manuscript fits. Remember, this contest is for category romance only. The descriptions below are directly from the Entangled Publishing website:
