To be judged by Nancy Holzner
Nancy Holzner grew up in western Massachusetts. She is the author of the acclaimed Deadtown urban fantasy/sci-fi series as well as the mystery novel Peace, Love, and Murder. An English major in college, Nancy continued her studies long enough to earn a masters degree and a PhD. She began her career as a medievalist, then jumped off the tenure track to write. Nancy lives in upstate New York. She enjoys visiting local wineries and listening obsessively to opera.
Why enter this contest?
Your chances of winning are higher, because there are five winners. Moreover, we do not expect you to carve your novel excerpt into the format of a short story, and so you are not starting out on uneven footing. In the first issue, we published 3 excerpts that started with Chapter One and two that started in the middle of the book. Last but certainly not least, our publication is marketed directly to literary agents as well as both small and large publishers, in order to give winning entries the greatest possible exposure.
