Description

The ‘Grand Opening Novel Contest’ pits the first 1,000 words of your book against that of authors all over the country! Entries should be:
1. In PDF format.
2. No more than 1,000 words long (stopping mid-sentence is perfectly fine, so don’t edit the segment).
3. Include only the book’s ISBN and the excerpt (not the title of the book, author name, email, photograph, or any other identifying information).
4. Submitted only if that particular book has not previously won the contest. Previous winning authors may submit a different book in their catalogue.
5. Submitted by 11:59 p.m. (eastern) on 2.28.21.

Contest is officially open from 2.1.21 to 2.28.21, but early registration is open now (entry fees won’t be charged until 2.1.21).

Judging will finish up in late March or early April (depending upon the amount of entries) and winners will be announced in April.

Cash portions of prizes will be distributed via PayPal so be sure to have a valid PayPal account in good standing before competing.
