Vanilla Heart Publishing Sponsors Summer Fiction Contest
The Washington State publisher wants novels in the mystery, suspense, and historical fiction genres. Full manuscripts will be requested from the authors of the top three contest submissions in each genre. The winning manuscript in each genre, as decided by our panel of three judges, will be awarded a standard VHP contract.
The contest opens to submissions at 12:01 a.m. on June 1, 2013, and will remain open until 12:00 p.m. September 15, 2013. Your submission must include only the first three chapters and the final chapter of your manuscript. Please do not submit work before or after those dates.
The summer contest is open to both published and unpublished writers, however, the manuscript submitted must not have been previously published in any format, including self-publishing venues and blogs. Novels must be complete, and be between 45,000–95,000 words. Submissions shorter or longer than this will not be considered.
You’ll find complete details and submission guidelines on the Vanilla Heart Publishing website.
Have fun writing, and best of luck in the contest. (Last year’s winner is now in print!)
