Fairy Dust & Fingers Crossed...

In just two days, the New Voices Contest to find the new star author for Harlequin Mills & Boon gets underway.

Haven't heard of it yet? Where have you been?

Seriously this is such a wonderful opportunity for any aspiring M&B writer and if anyone's thinking of entering, I urge you to give it a go.

Anyone who visits the eharlequin board knows the editors have just finished an awesome one-month quest to find new Medical authors. This was a huge success and I get the feeling the New Voices Contest will equal that success.

To that I end, this post is to spur everyone on! I know a few
special people who will be entering (go girls!!!) and a
few others who are still...

But remember, you gotta be in it to win it!
You have to strike while the iron's hot (or the competition is running), you have to...well, you get my meaning :)

But just to add a few more sweetners, here's some fair minx magic dust on all entries and crossing my fingers for anyone who's brave enough to enter.

An especially big dose of luck to my special people (you know who you are!) I'm not entering myself, but I couldn't be happier for the potential new voice who will emerge in a few short weeks.

According to M&B editor Lucy Gilmour, the judges include Penny Jordan, Tessa Shapcott (Editorial Director) and Managing Director Mandy Ferguson! You couldn't find a better panel, ladies and gentlemen, if you tried. The mentor team is equally as fabulous!

So good luck everyone and I look
forward to reading all the entries
and seeing who emerges the lucky...

  1. It looks like it's going to be a great comp. Can't wait to start reading all the entries.


  2. ARgh, my feet are now officially blocks of ice! You're lovely and generous with the fairy-dust, Maya. Thanks! How's your sub going?

  3. Still not sure about this one, Maya. Thanks for the fairy dust. Sending some to you for your sub.

    Abbi :-)

  4. You can have extra helpings of fairy dust if it'll help with thawing the ice. Good luck with your entry, Jackie! My sub is coming along, slowly but surely!

  5. Thanks, Abbi! I look forward to reading (and fairy dusting) your entry if you do decide to go ahead :)
