It’s rare that I post something on this blog that could change your life, but this is it. Two years ago, I was a guy with a finished horror manuscript and a hundred really polite rejection letters from agents and publishers. Then I entered the Journalstone Horror Contest, and the rest is history. Journalstone is a fantastic company, and there’s no better way to get their attention than this contest. Enter it, and good luck. If you decide to enter, let me know in the comments.
|JournalStone is holding its 3rd annual HORROR publishing contest.
If you are not familiar with the last two year’s winnesr please check out That Which Should Not Be by Brett J. Talley which won in 2011 and Twice Shy by Patrick Freivald and The Devil of Echo Lake, both of which tied for 1st place in 2012.
If you are interested please submit your 75,000 words or more manuscript/novel to joel.journalstone.com on or before May 15, 2013, and you will be entered. The winner will receive a $2,000 advance against future royalties and have his/her novel published by JournalStone. Grammar counts, have it edited before you submit your entry.
The #1 winner is also eligible for active membership to the HWA (Horror Writers Association). Have you always wanted to join, but haven’t met the criteria? You can now become an active member with all of its benefits and prestige!
