WritingRoom's Author Choice Contest - Extended and New Submission Guidelines!

by Lindsay 5/19/2009 2:00:00 PM

Due to tough economic times and an overwhelming response to the contest, we have decided to revise the terms and extend the timeline for WritingRoom's Author Choice contest. Entries will now be accepted until July 13, 2009.

Entrants will now need to finish the publishing process through PublishingRoom and simply e-mail copies of the final PDFs of both their published cover and interior to contest@WritingRoom.com. Entrants will NOT need to send books to WritingRoom. A manuscript must be attached in the e-mail. Judging will be based either on the published book from PublishingRoom or the manuscript.

WritingRoom will refund the cost of books ordered by entrants prior to the rule change. Receipts should be e-mailed to contest@WritingRoom.com with the subject line: "Authors Choice Refund". The refund will not cover shipping.

As a refresher, below is a list of the fabulous prizes offered in the WritingRoom's Author Choice Contest.
