Virginia Romance Writers Fool for Love Contest

I just received this from an historical romance writer friend. Apparently the contest has received an unusually low number of entrants this year. If your novel has a hint of romance and you’ve got the entry fee stuck in your couch, go for it and good luck!

June 20, 2010 – First-Round Finalists Notification

Awards:
1st Place in each category – $50
