Writing With the Stars Voting Continues!
Round Three of the Kensington Brava/RT Writing with the Stars contest is going on right now. Voting continues until January 2.
I am one of six remaining finalists in the national competition. The winner of the online voting contest will be published. But I can't get there without lots of support because I am up against some very talented writers.
For this challenge, I had to write a back-of-the-book blurb. Agent Kristin Nelson does an indepth critique of each entry that you might find interesting.
Click here to check out all of the entries. I hope you will consider voting for my manuscript, Seducing Charlotte, a historical romance set against the backdrop of the dawning Industrial Revolution.
I promise voting is super quick and easy. You can click in, vote and be done in under a minute. No registration is required. Thank you!
