Gorgeous New Covers

Avid readers of Mills and Boon will know that all the lines are having cover makeovers. As a subscriber to the Reader Service offered by Mills and Boon I recently received the Modern Releases for October - complete with gorgeous new covers.
Here they are. I really like them. What do you think?

Submissions and Competitions

If, like me, you want to write for Mills and Boon, I'm sure you have heard about their fantastic competition, New Voices. It opens on 6th September and today I am working on my entry. It will be a really exciting competition as all entries for the first chapter will be available online for comments.

Earlier this month I heard about my second submission to Mills and Boon. Unfortunately it wasn't what they were looking for, but the comments and advice given to me about my work were so positive, that I feel full of enthusiasm to continue with my current story and submit it later this year.

The New Writers' Scheme, organised by RNA closes at the end of this month and last month I sent in my submission. This is a brilliant opportunity for unpublished writers to gain feedback about their work.

More competitions for aspiring romance writers are offered by Romance Writers of Australia. These are brilliant for gaining feedback on your work and this year again I shall be entering some of my writing.

So, if you are an aspiring romance writer, there is lots out there at the moment to enter. Good luck!
