International Novelist Competition

 Guys & Gals, Gals & Guys,
I wanted to spread the word about a nifty contest that's trying to build some momentum. I've never participated in anything like this before but it sounded like a lot of fun so I decided to sign up as a judge. Here's a little bit about the contest per the website.

About the Contest:

The contestants go through a 6 step process. Each step cuts out certain novelists and leaves other ones standing. Watch as each contestant struggles to be better than the other. During this contests there will be webcam interviews, Book give-aways, guest appearances and many more exciting events to keep up with. Please note that all contestants are seen as talented artists, and they are solely judged on the mass opinion of book reviewers. Book reviewers have personal opinions which leads to the winner of this contest, any writer who doesn't succeed in this contest can always try again and will always be seen as talented.
