Harlequin Blaze will be releasing six books a month beginning in July 2005. They’re having a contest to find new writers for the line. No guarantees of publication, but the first and second place winners will receive a critique of their manuscript and a year’s subscription to the Blaze series. From the contest ad: “Take the same brash, bold heroines, but take them in a NEW direction. Is there a secret twist? A unique fantasy? A storyline you’ve never see before, but has Blazing potential? Is your voice seductive? Suspenseful? Laced with attitude? Or hopelessly romantic? They’ll all work! Just remember to include a high level of sexual chemistry and, of course, steamy sensuality.”
To enter, submit a first chapter (maximum length 25 pages) and a synopsis (no more than 5 pages). The contest is open to both published and unpublished authors. Please include a cover letter telling your publishing experience, contest wins, etc. Entries must be postmarked by August 31, 2005. Winners will be announced October 15, 2005. Send your entry to:
