Heads up!

The deadline is January 15 for the contests sponsored by my local chapter of Romance Writers of America, Southern Magic.

The Linda Howard Award of Excellence for unpublished writers is brand-new. No guarantees, but since it isn't well-known yet, it will probably have fewer entries than some others, giving you a better chance of finaling and getting your work in front of our awesome panel of editor judges:

Long Contemporary (series): Susan Litman, Editor, Silhouette
Short Contemporary (series): Brenda Chin, Associate Senior Editor, Harlequin
Single Title: Abby Zidle, Editor, HQN
Suspense (series or single title): Devi Pillai, Associate Editor, Warner
Historical: Alicia Condon, VP, Editorial Director, Dorchester
Unique Genres (Paranormal, Futuristic, Fantasy, Inspirational, Time Travel): Selena James, Editor, Pocket Books
Romantic Sensual and Sizzling: Kate Duffy, Editorial Director, Kensington Publishing

The prize for the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence for published writers is an ad with your book cover in Romance Writers Report. This is a terrific contest judged by avid romance fans. And because I'm the contest coordinator, your book can spend the night in my laundry room! ***the crowd goes wild*** Here are the categories:

Young Adult
Romantic Suspense Single Title
Romantic Suspense Series
Contemporary Single Title
Long Contemporary
Short Contemporary
