Booksellers Best Award 2020 – Now Open!

Did you write a romance in 2019? Do you want to get it in front of Booksellers & Librarians? Well here is your chance! Entries are still being taken for this contest until January 6, 2020!

My RWA Chapter, the Greater Detroit Romance Writers of America, hosts a fabulous contest each year as a fund raiser. The funds are used to bring speakers and programming to the Chapter, and is a wonderful opportunity for the applicants to get their work in front of a panel of amazing judges. There are several categories, and the entry fee is really reasonable. Awards are presented at the RWA National Conference, which will be held in San Francisco, CA in 2020.

Best of Luck to those who enter! And please be sure to pass this along to your Romance Writer friends!
