What exciting announcement is happening on Saturday August 18?
Romance writers from Australia and beyond will be gathered in the ballroom of the Sydney Sofitel on Saturday, 18th August, 2018, to hear the results of RWA Australia’s annual competitions.
Thrillingly, Stowaway is one of the finalists for the RWA Emerald Award.
The award’s criteria are (according to the RWA website):
The Emerald Award is our major contest for unpublished writers, and offers a unique opportunity to have your full manuscript judged if you make the second round. Initial entry is the first 10,000 words of your manuscript. The Emerald Pro is an equivalent contest for published writers who wish to try a new sub-genre they’ve never published in before.
This year the final round is being judged by Liz Pelletier, CEO of Entangled Publishing. Fingers crossed!
(If you’re wondering why I have a book cover for an unpublished book – I love making them. I often make the book cover before I even write manuscript. Hours of fun and procrastination…)
