Psssst! Have You Heard…

…about our contest?

Although the 2013 flight of Novel Rocket’s Launch Pad Contest: Boosting You Out of the Slush Pile took off earlier this year, there’s still time for you to get on board.


If you’re an unpublished novelist—if you’ve completed a manuscript in the Middle Grade/Young Adult, Romance, or Speculative Fiction genres—you can join the ranks of other writers who have received a boost by participating in this event.

Interested? Check out the official rules at the Launch Pad tab. Questions? Contact us at

Ready to play? Download the entry form here. Pay the entry fee using the PayPal button at the bottom of the Launch Pad tab. Then, following those Official Rules we talked about, email us your entry form, the first 3-4000 words of your manuscript, and the story’s synopsis. If you’re like most of our entrants, you’ll think it’s worth your while!
