New Kid on the Block?

If you’re new to Novel Journey, you might want to check out our awards program, OUT OF THE SLUSH PILE, Novel Journey’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame Contest.
It’s an experiment we started this year, but we’ve had a great response so far.
In January, we chose a winner in the Historical category.

In February, we revealed the Mystery/Suspense winner.

The judges are currently reviewing the Contemporary/Women’s Fiction submissions, with the winner to be announced on March 8.

And we’re currently taking entries for Middle Grade/Young Adult Fiction (the deadline for those is March 10).
So kids, whether you’re 16 or 60+, if you’ve never published a novel, and have written a book you’d like to see in print, there’s time to submit your first chapter and synopsis. We don’t guarantee publication, but we do promise that the winner will get some good exposure.

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the year:
Email your submissions, or any questions you have about the contest, to

And welcome to the party! I’m sure you’ll fit right in.
