I’m happy to announce that my as yet unpublished novel, “Bittersweet,” won first place in the Single Title Contemporary Romance category of the Wisconsin Romance Writers Fab Five Contest.
This is the fifth contest I’ve entered. I highly recommend entering writing contests, as well as joining a writers group. Romance Writers of America has tons of chapters, many of which host contests. It’s too easy to get caught up in your own writing and lose objectivity. A few objective critiques can put you back on track. I’m revising my manuscript based on critiques from fellow writers and contest judges, and it’s much stronger as a result.
