If You Write Romantic Suspense….

A little over a week ago, Love Inspired Suspense announced a search for new authors.

There are four stages in this fantastic opportunity for writers, The Search for a Killer Voice.

Start with sending in your first page, due by March 14. Editors will announce who moves on by March 28.

Those who continue will next submit a synopsis, due by April 7.

If your synopsis passes muster, the next submission will be the first three chapters, due May 8.

Writers whose chapters wow the editors will be requested to send in the full manuscript. Those will be due by June 9.

Final results will be announced August 8 in a blog post that shares the thoughts of the editors, announces any sales, and gives result statistics.

What do you say to an opportunity like that except wow? And definitely thank you!

If you’d like to read the entire announcement, you can find it on the Harlequin community thread.

There, you can also find writing guidelines for the LIS line, submission guidelines, and a post about writing a killer first page.

If you think you have what it takes to write inspirational romantic suspense {and many of you do already!}, why not give it a go?

Happy writing!
