Do you enjoy reading romance novels and want to help unpublished authors polish their manuscript in order to get it submission ready?
Romance Writers of New Zealand (RWNZ) is looking for READERS ONLY to judge the PACIFIC HEARTS entries. That means you can’t also be an author.
The Pacific Hearts contest is the RWNZ Unpublished Authors contest for a full book (40,000 to 100,000 words). Only New Zealand and Australian authors can enter this contest but their books, when published, are published worldwide.
You will be asked to only read the first 10,000 words. Then we select a group of finalists and those finalists will get their full books read.
If you enjoy reading romance novels across all genres, and are happy to judge the Pacific Hearts contest then please sign up. You will be expected to judge a number of books (you pick the number) within a 30 day period, you can read as many as you want.
You will receive the books in PDF format that can be converted and sent to your eReading device. Be aware that the formatting may be altered by the conversion and no marks should be deducted for this.
