Off and Running!

Our new awards program, OUT OF THE SLUSH PILE; Novel Journey’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame Contest, is under way. The first round entry deadline has passed, and the judges are now reading the Historical submissions. Winners will be announced January 11.

We’re excited to see the high quality of the entries. Seriously, it would be easier if they weren’t all so good – it’s hard to make a decision!

But if you missed the starting gun, don’t worry. You can still get in on the next lap, because we’ll be racing around this track for twelve whole months.

Click here for all the details. Then, get out that old book you never quite finished, and compose the perfect conclusion. Or, put that novel you’ve had simmering in your mind into words. Or, revise that manuscript you wrote some years back but couldn’t sell. Do whatever you must to get into the running. Here’s the schedule for the rest of the contest:


Whatever horse you’ve got in your barn, saddle up, cowboy, and let’s see what you’ve got!
