A Big Thank You and Updates From Swoon Reads HQ!
The time has come, Swooners!
To all of our wonderful writers, THANK YOU for submitting such a wide array of unique manuscripts for our third list. And to all of our fabulous readers, THANK YOU for all of your terrific input, comments, and ratings. We love hearing what you have to say, and your opinions really do make a difference!
Now that we have all of your fabulous comments to work with, today marked the official beginning of our editorial process. The whole Swoon Reads team came together to discuss your submissions and what we loved about them. We talked about what we thought needed to be fixed and what stuck with us long after we’d finished reading. Now that we’ve gotten input from you, we will be continuing to go through your comments and submissions to aid us in selecting the final list. We will be posting updates this month, so keep an eye on the blog!
In the meantime, don’t forget that November is National Novel Writing Month! If you haven’t already, head over to NaNoWriMo.org and join the worldwide endeavor to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Our Swoon authors are getting in on the action too, so be sure to check in with Sandy, Jenny, Katie, Temple, Kim, Karole for updates, pep talks, tips, and challenges.
Did you miss the submission deadline for this round? No worries! Our fourth list will be picked early next year, so if you submitted after Sept. 30, your manuscript will be considered then. The fourth list submission deadline isn’t until 11:59 p.m. EST on Jan. 30, so there’s still plenty of time to get your manuscript in.
And, just saying, completed NaNo projects make great Swoon Reads submissions! *nudge nudge wink wink*
