Writing Contest: All Romance’s Just One Bite short story contest

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Authors wanted for All Romance’s Just One Bite Short Story Contest! We are very excited about this contest. Thirty-two of the short stories submitted will be deemed “Semi-Finalists” and released onto the AllRomance.com and OmniLit.com websites on October 1, 2010.

Readers will vote for their favorite short stories during 5 rounds of voting with the field being narrowed at the end of each round. The first prize winning author will receive $1000 US. The second prize winning author will receive an 8GB iPod Touch. The third prize winning author will receive a $100 eBook Bucks Gift Certificate redeemable either at AllRomance.com or OmniLit.com.

Submissions will be accepted between September 1 and September 28, 2010. Each title must be an original, never before published paranormal romance work between 2,500 and 3,000 words and will be marketed exclusively by All Romance/OmniLit. Aut hors can access the submissions forms via this page http://www.allromanceebooks.com/submissions.html . Authors need to complete all fields to the best of their ability at the time of submission. I’ll be the Editor-In-Charge for the Contest and will lead the committee that will make the final decision on September 30 as to which submissions will be chosen as the Semi-Finalists. Stories selected as one of the 32 will be released for voting on October 1.

Authors should keep in mind that we will not be editing these manuscripts. They must have them edited PRIOR to submission.

We anticipate having more wonderful stories than we have slots for. If a story is not chosen as a Semi-Finalist, rights will be returned. Questions about the Contest can be directed to me at:
