I entered last year, and although I did not get into the top 20, I did get a call back from Mills and Boon asking to see more of my work. That didn't come to anything, but I am going to try again this year. I have submitted my first chapter, and am working on cleaning up my later chapters of the ms.
After dithering for sometime, I finally submitted my First Chapter last night. I'm so excited but also extremely nervous.
Good luck Fraulindor and christmasmum. By the way Fraulindor how does the whole process work from now on? Also have either of you read any of the other entries? It must be quite an overwhelming task for the judges.
