As a soon-to-be Boroughs Publishing Group author (well, I’m already a BPG author, just waiting for my book to come out), I received the below update from our authors’ group. A contest: one winner in any genre will receive a contract to publish their submission. Read more below if you’re interested.
From the Outside In
A Boroughs Publishing Group Romance Writers’ Contest
Who’s sexier than the rule-breaker, the bad boy, the charismatic leader of the rebel faction? What’s more satisfying than exerting your individuality against those who follow society’s most mindless routines?
Whether Robin Hood or Belle, Christian Grey or Han Solo, whether Neo or Zsadist, each of these characters act in contrast to a society, showing the natural conflict between us and our communities, and it’s through that conflict that communities – and people – change for the better.
This contest celebrates all who are different – and those who might learn to love them. Bring us your exiles, your pariahs, your good-at-heart criminals. Bring us your bluestockings and your hoydens, your smugglers and your rakes. Then show us how the world is better for having them – and how two lovers are better for having each other.
~ The Contest is open to all unpublished manuscripts between 45,000 and 100,000 words
