Win a Book Contract for Your NaNoWriMo Novel with Riverdale Avenue Books
Riverdale, NY – November 1, 2013 – Innovative New York publisher Riverdale Avenue Books is holding a NaNoWriMo publishing contest with a chance to win a book contract.
NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is an annual event that takes place in November where aspiring writers are challenged to begin the novel they have always wanted to write. Participants start writing their 50,000 word novel at midnight on November 1st and they have the whole month to complete it.
“I think it’s amazing that we have a national month devoted to encouraging writing,” said Lori Perkins, Publisher of Riverdale Avenue Books. “I see NaNoWriMo writers as artists and athletes, and I know that the work they produce becomes some of our cultures' best and brightest. I wanted to give those writers an opportunity to share their best work. I'm a big believer in immediate gratification, so publication within 12 months should be a nice carrot on the stick."
Submit your 50,000-80,000 word novel in the genres of erotica, erotic romance, horror, science fiction, fantasy, and LGBT fiction to Riverdale Avenue Books by December 1, 2013 for consideration. Riverdale Avenue Books’ team of editors will evaluate the submissions and choose first place winners, as well as honorable mentions, from each genre for publication by Riverdale Avenue Books.
Winners will be notified by email by February 1, 2014. Each book chosen will be eligible for standard contract terms, including publication as both print and ebook. The winning books will be published in 2014.
Please submit completed novels in a word document format with a brief author bio and book synopsis to firstname.lastname@example.org.
