Anybody Doing This?

I'm chicken.

They always say that good things come in threes. So once again Dorchester is offering all unpublished authors a chance to participate in the American Title contest, co-sponsored by Romantic Times. This year we’re looking for contemporary romance: chick lit, romantic suspense, paranormals, romantic comedies and anything that falls in between. The finished manuscript should be 80,000-90,000 words, but to start we just need the first three chapters and a synopsis that summarizes the story from beginning to end. Send your entries by June 1st to:

Dorchester Publishing
200 Madison Ave., Suite 2000
New York, NY 10016

Please note that “unpublished” refers to authors who have never had a
full-length novel appear in print form.

I dreamed about Alex again. Also had a very complex dream about school, something about a talent show/science fair/writing contest/cooking competition all on one day. And I finally got to meet the principal's wife. And the principal kept disappearing with Cindi.

That was a drug-free dream, too, I want you to know.

And if you're curious, the new flavored Tostitos are gooooood.

Dude, Tostidos flavored with WHAT???? I swear, you have the freakiest dreams. I'm wondering if I should do AT. This isn't the voting one, right? The voting one is Kensington?

This is the voting one, T. That's why I'm chicken.

The Tostitos I tried were lime and cracked black pepper. The other ones I bought but haven't opened yet are Ranch.

And yes, weird dreams. Oddly, I was supposed to be in charge of the talent show in the dream and ended up going through the writing contest so I could keep the entries as scrap paper.

What have you got to lose?

MJFredrick said...

Good point, Cece. And what's the use of obsessing how you'll get votes if you don't even get to the final 10??

Hm....I wonder which book I would send....
