Writing Contest Starts Today: Do you have the best opening?

Best Opening Contest Submit Your Book

My latest contest starts today, February 14th. Happy Valentine’s Day!

A strong opening is the most important part of a book. Without it, a reader is unlikely to move beyond the first chapter. Do you think your current project has what it takes to hook a reader in the first few paragraphs?

Enter the first 690 words
of your work-in-progress
or recently self-published book
for a chance to win a $100 VISA gift card
and publicity on this blog.

About shondabrock

I'm a southern in my heart and a northern in my soul. I've had a few bad wines, but for the most part I've enjoyed enough good wines that it makes up for the few bad bottles. I enjoy writing, but more than writing itself, I love telling a good story, taking my reader off on an adventure starting with "What If"…. I'm a sucker for the Paranormal Romance genre. To me, its nice to be released from "What Is Expected" and believe for 250 pages in "What If's". Its like a vacation with out passports, waiting in line and an expensive credit card bill when you return home. Please Enjoy, but more importantly Stay Inspired…
