The 2017 Book Challenge is now open for TARA members!
Do you want the chance to win money for finishing your book(s) this year? TARA members may submit up to five (5) finished (they don’t have to polished!) manuscripts of Romantic Fiction in our Book Challenge between January 1st and June 30th.
You must write a minimum of 40,000 new words on each manuscript after payment for the Book Challenge is received. Anthologies are eligible if the combined words in the series total a minimum of 40,000 words.
The Book Challenge collects ten dollars (S10.00) entry fee per book. The entry money collected is given away in a drawing at TARA’s Holiday Party. First place winner receives 50%! If funds allow, second place receives 20%, and third place receives 10%. Participants must submit their completed manuscript file(s) at the end of the challenge for verification of word count to be eligible for the drawing.
Book Challenge participants encourage one another with weekly progress reports on TARA’s Yahoo Loop. Join the fun of friendly competition and enter the TARA Book Challenge. Please contact the Book Challenge Coordinator, Renee Nelson, or a board member if you have any questions.
