New Contest

AUGUST CONTEST

It's that time again! The Romance Junkies Writing Contest is ongoing, and it needs voters!!
This year I'm on the judge's panel. Read excerpts from the stories and rate what you think. Each week new stories are added, the old ones taken off the rating poll.
To encourage participation, I'm offering the chance for 1 person to win a $20 Barnes & Noble gift certifcate.
  • To be eligible to win, simply email me the names of the entries you rated. Don't tell me what you rated, just the stories that you rated on. Send the email to marie_harte@yahoo.com, with August Contest in the subject line.
  • For every 5 stories rated, your name is entered once in the drawing. There are 16 entries this week, so if you rate all the stories, your name goes in the pool 3 times.
  • Winner announced August 18th

Good Luck, and don't let my deadline stop you from rating all the stories throughout the second week of September. I get to critique one of the top-rated books. The more you rate, the better the book is that I'll eventually critique. So thanks in advance!!

Hi Marie - Just read Tied and True and loved it! I did a doubletake seeing Augusta, GA as the locaiton for the story - it's rare that this city is mentioned in stories.
Thanks for penning a fun and terrific tale!

Hey Rhian.
Glad you liked Tied and True. Yeah, I decided to use my current "hometown" as the backdrop for a story. I live in the general CSRA area, and am not really a golf buff, which is too bad since this seems to be golf central with the Masters Tournament every year. I'm just surprised you noticed Augusta, GA. Before I lived here, when I thought Augusta, I always pictured Maine. :)

Well hell woman - we're neighbors! Next time you have a booksigning give me a shout and i'll drag the Creative Goddesses to it.
And if you're interested we'll be doing poetry/prose reading at Arts in the Heart on the Cafe Stage again this year - Karin and some other authors will be participating.
