I just submitted my 100 word blurb and 5000 word entry for a romance novel on www.soyouthinkyoucanwrite.com. If you have a romance novel done (or near done), then check it out.
I’ve had this novel done for a while. I’ve been meaning to submit it to Harlequin but never gotten around to it. Now I’ve gotten around to submitting it for a contest. All the first chapters are going to be posted for people to vote on. The top 25 will be advanced with 3 more being selected by the editors.
Now it is a wait and see thing. Fortunately I won’t have to wait long as they will notify the winners by October 12. Then there is another round where editors review and only three end up finishing.
I’m nervous about this but at the same time I know if this doesn’t work then I’ll figure something else out or just submit it again, and again, and … you get the picture. Or I might actually figure out how to go through and self-publish.
Wish me luck and let’s hope I get lots of votes…
