Valentine's Day Contest!

In spirit of Valentine's day, I'm holding a short story contest!

Rules and Guidelines


· Please comment below telling me that you are participating, and what you will be submitting! Please also include some sign that you thoroughly read all of the rules.

· If you email me, comment on my page, or anywhere else that is not this contest page, your participation will not count, and I will not judge your work. You will first receive a warning from me to comment on the contest page, but if you fail to do so after the warning, your work will not be judged.

· Participation deadline is January 18th 2013. I know that seems soon, but I also need to give you guys time to actually write your entries! If you do not note your participation by January 18th 2013, you will not be allowed to participate in the contest.

Judges and Judging

· The only judge will be me. I will be reading all short stories submitted for the contest.

· Judging will be based on the following:

· Grammar and Spelling.

· Content.

· Likes/comments/reads.

· Ability to comply with rules and guidelines.

Short Story Submission

· Your story must be a minimum of 2,000 words, and a maximum of 8,000 words. Anything under/over will be disqualified.

· Comment on the contest page with either the title of your work, or a link. Word count must be included in comment.

· Obviously the theme is Valentine's Day. It can be any genre: ex. romance, horror, action. Just make sure to incorporate Valentine's Day into your story!

· Submission deadline is February 14th 2013. Any story submitted after February 14th 2013, will be disqualified. This gives you a month to write a short story.

· Your story must be newly written. Works that have been previously uploaded to Booksie will be disqualified. It's not fair if you submit a work from a year ago with reads/comments/likes, and other people write something completely new.


· 1st place winner: A fan from me, if I'm not one already. Unlimited reading requests, that I must complete. A link to your page on my profile. 5 edit requests (I must edit 5 of your requested works).

· 2nd place winner: A fan from me, if I'm not one already. Reading requests for the remainder of 2013. 3 edit requests.

· 3rd place winner: A fan from me, if I'm not one already. Reading requests for the next six months (starts when winners are announced). 1 edit request.

· All others: A fan from me, if I'm not one already. Reading requests for the next month (starts when winners are announced).

Good Luck to all of you! I can't wait to read your stories! Have fun!
