Some of the comments I received during the contest, from numerous folks, was that the idea of pitching a series, rather than a single book, was "too daunting" or "intimidating." We listened. We heard.
Today, we announce two NEW contests - and both are for single books! (If it's part of a series, you can still enter - just let us know when you submit.)
For the "One Hope" contest:
One Fiction winner will receive $250 and our standard publishing contract of his or her book.
One Nonfiction winner will receive $250 and our standard publishing contract for his or her book.
We are also announcing a special Christmas Hope Contest today, too, so be sure to check out that page if you have a Christmas manuscript ready to go!
Now for the details of the "One Hope" contest. Books for this contest may be fiction or nonfiction, any genre, but they must offer hope to the reader in some way.
There will be two rounds of judging.
