Yes, it’s finally here!! Today at 4 pm EST the submission window for Sun versus Snow opens. Michelle and I are very excited to be bringing you this contest again, and are looking forward to hearing all the success stories that come from the contest – *fingers crossed*.


While we are waiting to open the window I wanted to share a few reminders:


1) Once the window opens please get your entry in ASAP. We are only taking the first 200 entries!


2) Before sending, please double-check to make sure your entry is formatted correctly. Formatting link is here:


3) If your entry is not selected this year, please DO NOT be discouraged. As with everything in publishing this is a very subjective process. Not only do Michelle and I have our preferences, but we also have to keep in mind what the participating agents are looking to represent.


4) Use this time to connect to other writers via #sunvssnow. When I first started entering contests I met a lot of new friends (and critique partners) during the process. Don’t be afraid to reach out and say “Hi” to someone who writes in your same category and/or genre. You may make a lifetime friend!


5) Keep writing. Work on something new. If this manuscript isn’t THE ONE, the next one may be. Continue to perfect your craft and NEVER GIVE UP!
