Kathryn Hayes “We Need a Hero” Contest
We all love a hero. We swoon over Regency rakes. We fan ourselves over the honorable fireman, and nothing is hotter than a man in uniform. A hero is much more than a hot bod. RWA/NYC wants to see his depths so send us a scene where your hero shines.
Whether he’s a Duke, an Earl, CEO, Vampire, Navy Seal or a Cowboy, we want him. Send us a scene showing your hero being a hero. Whether he’s saving the heroine or expressing his love, just show us what makes the heroine fall in love.
Eligibility: Contest opens on June 1, 2014 to those neither published in novella or novel-length fiction as of September 8, 2014. Self-published authors are welcomed to enter.
Enter: A maximum of 20 pages that shows your hero in the best light. Include a two page synopsis (not judged) to setup submission.
Deadline: 11:59 p.m., Sept 8, 2014
