As we did with A Dozen Apologies, we're offering the opportunity for writers to submit chapters for the novella, based on the story synopsis and first chapter that we'll provide by e-mail upon request.
To be considered, you'll write two chapters of 2,500 to 3,500 words each in the specified character's third-person, deep POV. This story will be much like The Love Boat Bachelor and its predecessor, A Dozen Apologies in that the readers will get to vote for the hero they think will be the best man for our heroine. There will be nine or ten authors writing heroine chapters, along with a first chapter written by the creator of the heroine and the final chapter written by the author who creates the winning hero.
There are eight WIP authors writing chapters. We will select one - and maybe two - contestants to participate in the final project. The winning contestant(s) will be offered the same contract as the other participating authors.
The deadline to submit chapters is April 15, 2015.
If you wish to enter, please send an e-mail with the subject line SEQUEL INFORMATION, and we'll send you the information by March 1. [UPDATED: Information packets will be sent out March 3.] Send your e-mail to editor[at]writeintegrity[dot]com.
