$1,000 Just One Bite Short Story Contest (free to enter)

Post date: 08 September 2010
Deadline/Date: 28 September 2010

Thirty-two of the short stories submitted will be deemed “Semi-Finalists” and released on October 1, 2010.

Readers will vote for their favorite short stories during 5 rounds of voting with the field being narrowed at the end of each round. The first prize winner will receive $1000 US. The second prize winner will receive an iPod Touch. The third prize winner will receive a $100 eBook Bucks Gift Certificate redeemable either at AllRomance.com or OmniLit.com.

Each title must be an original, never before published paranormal romance work between 2,500 and 3,000 words and will be marketed exclusively by All Romance. After the contest, the works may be bundled or distributed individually by All Romance via our Free Read program. You will find more information about our Free Read program in the Advertising/Affiliate section (link at the bottom).

Submissions will be accepted between September 1 and September 28, 2010. Below are the forms that must be completed for each submitted work. Please complete all fields to the best of your ability at the time of submission. I'll be the Editor-In-Charge for the Contest and will lead the committee that will make the final decision on September 30 as to which submissions will be chosen as the Semi-Finalists. If your story is selected as one of the 32, it will be released for voting on October 1.

Keep in mind that we will not be editing these manuscripts. You must have them edited PRIOR to submission.

We anticipate having more wonderful stories than we have slots for. If your story is not chosen as a Semi-Finalist, you will have rights returned to you. Questions about the Contest? Check out our FAQ. Other questions can be directed to me at: cat.johnson@allromanceebooks.com
