Kirsty Greenwood (kirstygreenwood) | 1 comments Are you writing contemporary, funny, female focused fiction? Are you unpublished?
Well, Novelicious is pleased to announce a brand new weekly feature - 'Novelicious Undiscovered' !
We are inviting unpublished wannabe authors to submit an excerpt of their work in progress to the site http://www.novelicious.com , for review and critique by our readers (strictly chick lit and contemporary women's fiction only).
It's a great way to showcase your writing, and as some of the UK's top publishers, book publicists, editors and agents regularly read the site - who knows - you might just get discovered!
For more info, or to send some writing, please email kirsty@novelicious.com with the subject header 'Novelicious Undiscovered'.
At the end of the year, the piece that has generated the most interest/comments from our readers will win a lovely Novelicious Award with a proper (very pretty) trophy and everything, as part of the end of year Novelicious Book Awards (more info on that coming soon).
Come on then - get writing!!
UPDATE - Excerpts must be from the beginning of your novel (i.e. chapter one) so that your writing (characters/storyline/etc) is more clearly introduced to our readers and please send no more than 1000 words. Cheers! :)

Is this something you're still featuring? Couldn't seem to find a link to it on your site.

If not, we'd like to gladly point everyone to http://www.ChickLitShorties.com :)

Kristy

Visited your site and was impressed with the quality of the reviews. Any chance you will be accepting e-books for review in the near future?

Wow! This is great! I am working on a chick lit novel and would love feedback. Thank you so much for the post.

Thank you so much for the information! I just checked out your website and plan to have a submission ready for the August 25 deadline! :)

Adrienne | 1 comments Hi there!

I just submitted a couple of stories I wrote for a writing challenge over at the On Fiction Writing group here at Good Reads. They're not published, just posted there as part of a monthly writing challenge for critiques from the group members. I assume they're still eligible?

Thanks,
A.


Chick Lit Shorties (ChickLitShorties) | 16 comments Hi Adrienne, thanks for asking. As long as they're not published but just up for critique, it's not a problem. And since Goodreads requires users to log in to see content you won't even have to worry about taking it down from there :)
