Can your book keep us reading?

The Strongest Start Book Competition judges the first three chapters of your book to find those that start with the most compelling opening chapters. The book does not need to be finished. The competition only judges the first three chapters.

The competition is also unique in that it is a live writing competition. That means that every writer will receive feedback on their opening chapters, which can be used to improve their entry up until the deadline. In this way, every participant wins by receiving the feedback and motivation to make their book start with as strong an opening as possible.
