Competition for Publication



Do you have a YA book lying around that you couldn't get an agent for?

Wyvern Publications, the UK publisher that is publishing my YA fantasy Epic, The Voices of Ire, is having a competition for publication. The winner gets a contract with Wyvern Publications.

Here is the link if you are interested. You'll have to scroll down through two other competitions to get to the rules. Granted, there is an entry fee, but this publisher means business and will publish the winning YA book IN PRINT for free. I think it's better than going the self publishing route, especially if you've already shopped the book around and no agents took an interest in it.

Anyone going to enter?

Thanks for letting me know! I'm not a YA writer, but if I was I'd SO be entering!
