An opportunity you'll love

Mills and Boon are running a novel writing competition with Prima magazine.

If you can get the outline and opening chapter to them by the end of March you're in with a chance of an excellent prize package which includes publication, a cash prize and books. UK residents only are eligible to enter.

Assuming I can get something ready in time, I plan to enter a romance set partly in a cottage garden, a little like this one.

Hi Patsy - I think Mills and Boon is out of my 'ken' - but good luck with the entry and a cottage garden will definitely improve romance! Cheers Hilary

Good luck Patsy! Its not a genre I write.

Lexa Cain said...

What a great opportunity! Thanks for sharing and wishing you very good luck with getting an entry in there!

Good luck, Patsy!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

Let's collaborate. I'll write the car-chase and murder scenes, you write the lovey dovey stuff.

Rosemary Johnson said...

Thanks, Patsy. Will look at this.

Sounds like a great opportunity for those in the U.K. Good luck with your submission, Patsy. When I belonged to the Exeter & District Writers Club (now Exeter Writers), we were all desperate to write a Mills & Boon! One of our members (sorry, can’t remember her name now) was actually accepted and went to London to meet the Editors. We were so thrilled for her.

Since I cant join in, I hope you win, Patsy.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Hilary.

Patsy said...

I do write romance, but whether it's M&B type romance I'm not sure.

Patsy said...

If I get something in, I'll consider that an achievement in itself, Lexa.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Alex.

Patsy said...

That could work, Mac!

Patsy said...

Well worth a try if it's the kind of thing you'd like to write, Rosemary.

Patsy said...

That must have been exciting.

Thanks, Oscar.
