It’s NaNoWriMo…that’s National Novel-Writing Month, if you didn’t already know. And if you DID know, you’re probably working on a novel yourself–or at least have thought about doing so. Well, now’s your chance, because we are hosting a writing contest, in conjunction with Archway Publishing, and we want to publish a great romance novel!

That’s right…if we select your romance, YOU could win a publishing contract with Pocket Star, the digital-first imprint of Gallery Books and Simon & Schuster! You’d work closely with our editors, cover artists, publicists and marketers to bring your work to life, and to readers–so what are you waiting for?

And two runners-up will receive publishing packages from Archway (the self-publishing arm of Simon and Schuster), to help you turn your dream into an actual book!

To enter, visit our submission page and fill out the form there. Submissions are open from now until January 31, 2018, and we’ll announce the winner on Valentine’s Day (when else?).

So sharpen those pencils, warm up those laptops and start writing us an amazing romance. We can’t wait to read it!
