Book Challenge Program

TARA members may enter the Book Challenge for a chance to win money for finishing your book(s) within a year! Members 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 of each year.

computerThe Book Challenge collects ten dollars (S10.00) entry fee per book. After payment is received, you must write a minimum of 40,000 NEW words on each manuscript. Anthologies are eligible if the combined words in the series total a minimum of 40,000 words.

The collected entry money 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 Book Challenge Yahoo Loop. Become a TARA member and join the fun of friendly competition by entering the TARA Book Challenge.
