The judges for this contest will be:

Emma Paul

I have lived in the Northeast all of my life, and have written stories since grade school. Story telling lets me escape into the alternate universe of vivid characters and fantastical tales my infinite imagination conjures up. Writing is my little piece of heaven. The world I create lets me live out my passions, my secret fantasies. My current work in progress is a paranormal erotic romance titled Soul mate’s Touch. As a writer of paranormal and Sci-fi romance and erotic romance, I live each wondrous adventure the minute my muse hits the keyboard. When I'm not writing, I'm thinking about writing and when I'm writing, I'm soaring.

Charli Mac

Charli was born, raised, and still resides in Philadelphia,PA. As a child Charli sought out characters in her imaignation and as an adult decided to give them a voice. She is currently working on her first novel, A contemporary Romance, enititled By Grace Alone. Taking thoughts about a good story and actually writing one has been an adventure filled with ups and downs. Learning the craft is a journey, a neverending one.

Brenda Dyer

I live on beautifulVancouver Island, off the coast of British Columbiawith my husband, two reenage boys, two minature horses-both boys-chickens and threee cats- two of which are males. Hmmm, a lot of testosterone flying around my  house. I’ve been an avid reader of romance since I was a teen and always dabbled in writing, but not seriously until 2007. From the moment I sat at my computer and starting writing my first novel, I was hooked! My idea of the perfect day is my coffee, my computer and the company of my character’s speaking to me–directing my hands.Emma Paul

Ambrielle Kirk

Ambrielle Kirk has a serious addiction for writing great stories. She pens romantic fiction ranging from contemporary erotic to dark paranormal romance. Lost in her characters’ worlds is where she likes to be, mixing sweet romance, hot sex, and intricate world-building. Alpha-heroes take the center stage in her plots, because they command her attention and she has a weakness for them. Her demanding day job keeps her busy in the city of Atlanta, but her characters fill her imagination at night. In her free time she likes to read, bake cakes and cookies, eat cakes and cookies, shop, and daydream. Check out her website or keep her company on twitter @ambriellekirk.

Zee Monodee

Author of stories about love, life, relationships... in a place of culture

Zee is an author who grew up on a fence - on one side there was modernity and the global world, on the other there was culture and traditions. Putting up with the culture for half of her life, one day she decided she'd stand tall on her wall and dip toes every now and then into both sides of her non-conventional upbringing.
From this resolution spanned a world of adaptation and learning to live on said wall. The realization also came that many other young women of the world were on their own fence.
This particular position became her favourite when she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of writing - her heroines all sit 'on a fence', whether cultural or societal, in today's world or in times past.
Hailing from the multicultural island of Mauritius, Zee has been writing for close to a decade and has had 3 novels published so far. After a stint in the publishing industry, on the 'other side of the fence' as an editor, her goal today is to pen wholesome, fulfilling stories and help fellow authors, whether as critique partner or as freelance editor.
You can find more about her on her blog

Please refrain from sharing you work with any of the judges. This will result in disqualifying you from the contest. Crits are allowed just not with the judges and I recommend you not post on sites they frequent just so no one accidentally comes across your work. So please send for crits in private emails.

I am looking forward to reading everyone’s work. Just remember to dig deep and be creative.

Happy Writing,

When night falls passions blaze.
