Yesterday, I introduced award-winning author of the Threads West, An American Saga, series, Reid Lance Rosenthal.
Reid has generously agreed to act as the sole judge the “Best First” Contest, and is including a critique to the winner!
Now, without further ado, let’s get to the contest details…
Entrants shall enter the first sentence to any novel they’ve completed, but haven’t published.
If you’ve written more than one novel you can enter the first sentence from each—just complete separate entries for each one.
Entries should include author’s name, title of novel, genre, and first sentence. (Use my example below as a guideline.)
Along the Way Home
Historical Western Romance
Every Wednesday Kate stood on the same front porch, her hand poised inches from the door, willing herself to do the unthinkable—walk away without knocking.
All genres accepted.
Enter your sentence in the comments section of this post.
Contest deadline is June 22nd, 2012 at 11:59 pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time).
Winners will be announced when Reid is done judging :)
Prizes are amazing, and as follows…
Grand Prize Winner will receive a critique of their first page of their novel from Reid, AND books one and two of Reid’s Threads West, An American Saga, series…Threads West and Maps of Fate.
First Runner Up will receive a package of writing goodies (chosen by me and I always include great stuff!) AND books one and two of Reid’s Threads West, An American Saga, series…Threads West and Maps of Fate.
Second Runner Up will receive book one of Reid’s Threads West, An American Saga, series…Threads West.
