Dear Romance Authors,
We’d like to start by thanking all of you for the outstanding response to the Romance Writing Life Competition.
We are truly impressed for both the quantity and the quality of the entries received. This makes our decisions more complex and the reviewing process remarkably longer than expected.
We are aware that the winners should be announced by August 28th. Unfortunately, as there have been so many incredible entries, we really want to give your hard work the time that it so richly deserves, therefore we will be unable to announce the winners by the end of August.
In respect to all the time and effort you have devoted to this competition we wish to devote just as much time and thought in ensuring that we find the right winner.
So, what happens next?
We are currently in the process of shortlisting the finalists who will be notified the by September 20th.
We’ll then announce the winners by October, 1st.
We are sorry that we are prolonging your wait but we feel this is the best action to ensure the winner is chosen fairly.
Thank your patience and good luck!
Romance Writing Life Team
