Have you wanted to be published? Do you have ideas and want those ideas to turn into a story? My publisher is having a novel contest. It is 35 dollars to enter and has to be fiction and 50,000 words or more. The grand prize is a 1000 dollars and a publishing contract. It won't hurt to give your novel a try and see if you are the next author. Go to http://www.punkinhouse.com/ and click on the link to the contest and best of luck to you.
