Could YOU be our next romance writing star?

Piatkus Entice, pioneers of romance digital publishing and the online home of such internationally  famous authors as Sherrilyn Kenyon, Eloisa James and Christine Feehan, have teamed up with the Festival of Romance to offer you a fantastic opportunity!

We’re giving aspiring authors the chance to win an ebook publishing contract with Piatkus Entice. The winning author will receive intensive editorial guidance, publicity and marketing support and a contract with Piatkus Entice for the publication of the novel as an ebook.

We’ll be working with Radio Gorgeous and Cornishware to help spread the word and they’ll even be offering some extra prizes along the way (make sure to check back next week for a fabulous competition).
If you’re ready to take the next step with your writing, this is your chance . . .

I want in! How do I enter?

Just email the first two chapters of your novel and a short, enticing synopsis of no more than 100 words to Piatkus.Entice@littlebrown.co.uk before the closing date of 2nd September. Your submission can be any genre of romance writing you can think of, but please attach it as a Word document, with the subject line ‘Piatkus Entice competition’. All submissions will be read and considered by the Entice Team who will, after copious cups of fortifying tea, compile a shortlist of their three favourite submissions.

What happens next?

On the 1st October the Entice Team will post the top three submissions on the Piatkus Entice website, where readers will be invited to vote for their favourite! The two authors who receive the most votes move on to the next stage and will be asked to send in their third chapter by the 21st October.

The final decision will be taken by the Piatkus Entice team and the winner announced at the Festival of Romance on 9th November 2013 . Please note! The winner must be available to attend the Festival of Romance’s Gala Dinner on 9th November 2013.
