Hey, guys! Guess what's coming up in February?


That's right! My (beloved) publisher, Sapphire Star Publishing, will be visiting the Alley for a pitch contest right before Valentine's Day. Why? Because SSP ♥ NA!  
Details:

Who: Anyone with a complete NA contemporary or NA paranormal manuscript and a polished, query-sized pitch (<250 words) may enter.

What: This is a speed-based contest. Only the first 25 entries will be considered by Amy Lichtenhan, co-owner of Sapphire Star Publishing.

When: February 09, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. EST.
(We chose this time because many of you work during the week, and it should be fairly accessible for most time zones.)

Where: NA Alley, of course! On the 9th, we'll leave instructions about how you can enter via comment.

Why: Because we love you! ♥
 
FAQs:

Will SSP consider novellas?
Negative.
How many winners will they select? Up to three.
What will each winner receive? A full manuscript request!
Will there be runners-up? Possibly...
How many? To be determined.
What will each runner-up receive? A partial manuscript request (first three chapters)!
Bonus:
We're asking everyone to spread the word, and as an incentive, we're offering a special giveaway!

Notes:
  • We have a busy week ahead of us, so I'm skipping this month's Exploring Terms post. If you missed the first two, you can find them here ("indie") and here ("traditional").
  • On Wednesday, we're revealing Victoria's cover for The Space Between. On Friday, we're announcing February's Featured Book of the Month.
  • Thank you to everyone who showed up for #NALitChat last Thursday! I had a wonderful time hosting and exchanging promotional strategies with you all. For anyone who missed it, you can find the transcript here.
  • We're still accepting applications for a new contributor and a group coordinator. If you're on the fence about applying, check out these expectation flyers. ;)

    1. Don't you just hate that? Then, by the time you finish your MS, no one is advertising contests! Ah, the woes of writing...

      Thanks for stopping by, Kyra! <3

  10. I'm not good at pitching any of my books. At least not until they're out. Hanging head in shame.

    This does sound like fun though.
