Sourcebooks Creates New Romance Award
Sourcebooks has launched a new contest with Bookstore Romance Day for unpublished and self-published romance writers: the Discover New Romance Award. The prize has been established to support both romance authors and to show that independent bookstores are committed to the genre, as each entry will receive a minimum of five critiques from a panel of independent booksellers. The winner will get an in-depth critique from a Sourcebooks acquisitions editor.
Entrants must submit a synopsis or pitch and a thirty-page writing sample via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28. Submissions will be capped at fifty entries and will be accepted on a first come, first considered basis.
