Valentine Secrets: Harlequin Mentor Challenge

Post date: 30 January 2011
Deadline: 12 February 2011

How would you like to win a Mentor For A Month? Well, now is your chance!

Take part in our Valentine Secrets Challenge and you'll have a chance to learn from Harlequin Desire author and long-time Community Member, Tessa Radley! Tessa started out just like you, right here on the message boards, learning from authors and peers before joining the ranks of our published Harlequin authors and now she wants to give back. She has generously agreed to blind-judge all the entries and select a winner to mentor for a month. All you need to do is write the best Valentine of your life!

Here's how to take part:

1) Write a Titled, 1k start to a Valentine's-themed, secret-baby romance. All other details are up to you!

2) Submit your story--either in the body of the email or an attached document, with the subject line: Valentine Secrets Entry--to Hosty Dee at laideebug @ gmail.com (no spaces) by 11:59 pm, Feb 12th, 2011 (PDT). DO NOT POST HERE! All entries posted here will be disqualified.

You can also click HERE to send your entry.

3) Join us on Feb 14th to read all the entries, comment and give feedback to your fellow writers!

It's that simple! Tessa will choose her winner and we'll announce the name Feb. 20th, so be sure to get your entry in on time!
