CALLING ALL UNPUBLISHED WRITERS!
Have you always dreamed of writing for Presents?
The INSTANT SEDUCTION writing competition for original first chapters is coming!
The old saying goes that first impressions are lasting impressions – and when it comes to a book, that certainly holds true. If the first chapter doesn’t immediately grip the reader, then they just won’t bother to go on any further.
Regular readers of Presents will know that the hallmarks of all our stories are pace, passion and intensity – and that they expect to see them stamped on our novels from the very first page.
So, do you harbor a burning ambition to become a writer for Harlequin Presents? Do you think that you can grab readers’ attention and instantly seduce them with your characters, dialogue, emotional conflict and sizzling sensual tension from the moment they begin turning the pages?
Then we want to hear from you!
