Read Month Challenge: Help Us Discover New Writers for a Chance to Win Books and Swag!

This sweepstakes is now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Hi there, Swooners!

Now that Read Month is well and truly upon us, we hope you've all had fun diving into all of the amazing new submissions on site.

With so many new manuscripts on site, we'd love to get more eyes on undiscovered manuscripts. So we've decided to issue a special challenge to you, Swooners. If you are one of the first five people to comment with editorial feedback on a manuscript with fewer than five reviews (meaning comments containing editorial feedback) between January 15-29, you will be entered to win some Swoon Reads books and swag! Even if you only have time to dip into the first three chapters of a submission, partial feedback is better than no feedback at all. Giving new writers a boost is what the Swoon Reads community is all about!

We rely on your feedback to help us choose which books to publish. Your thoughts could help a budding author's dream come true! Happy reading, and we can't wait to see which stories you fall in love with. 

Any questions? Let us know in the comments.
