Yes... I'm blowing this up extra big so you can't say you didn't see. LOL
We only have 6 days left to enter the Weta Nichols Fiction Writing Contest.  SIX DAYS!

This is a great contest. I've entered (and placed a couple of times) over the years since being a member of Ozarks Romance Authors in Springfield MO.  Our group puts a lot of work both into the conference and coordinating this contest.

The Weta Nichols Fiction Writing Contest was started in honor of one of our founding members and has become the crown of our annual conference.

Submit the first chapter (up to 2,500 words) of your unpublished novel to win prizes and a chance to be read by one of the agents or editors serving as our final judges.
Contest is open to both published and unpublished authors, but the piece submitted must be unpublished (traditional, self-pub, or e-pub) and not under contract to be published.
Categories in which entries may be judged are: Historical, Contemporary, Paranormal/Sci-Fi and Young Adult/Middle Grade. Entries are open genre and not required to contain romantic tones.
Membership in Ozarks Romance Authors is not required in order to enter. There will be three prizes awarded in each category: 1st place $75 and a 1-Year ORA Membership, 2nd place $50 and 3rd place $25.
Please read all guidelines carefully. If you have questions about the rules, please email us (with WETA QUESTION in the subject line) at
So what are you waiting for. Polish up that chapter and join us for ORACon 2014!
