New novelists contest  May 23, 2012 - August 1, 2012

Reading and Deliberating


For awhile now, I've been looking for new authors to read, but I wanted to read new novelists' work. Post the first chapter of your current novel (see genres below), and I will read through them. The top three (3) that keep my attention and make me want to read more will win. I may come up with a checklist. Or not. We'll see.

*Please, for the sanctity of all that is great literature, edit before you submit.*

*You can submit up to five (5) DIFFERENT projects. Please, no poetry or erotica.*

*There will be NO monetary compensation.*

*Winners will be announced August 1, 2012.*
