Hey fellow writers. A new contest, The Great Novel Contest, is opening in January. I know. I know. Many people believe that the Internet is filled with scam artists, myself included. (Not that I’m a scam artist but that I agree the Internet is filled with them!)
I researched it and “talked” with the guy who runs it. (No I didn’t work him over too badly.) It’s totally legit. They even have a New York agent judging the thing, Terra Chalberg. My publisher, The Columbus Press, will publish the winner’s novel.
Even if you don’t win, you still have a chance to win street cred as a runner up or finalist. I’ve won a contest in my day and attribute it to helping me snag a publisher for my novel, www.capitaloffensebook.com. So polish your novel and submit. Tell them Kurt sent you.
