Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
CrossBooks, the assisted self-publishing imprint of B&H Publishing Group, and LifeWay, announced the second annual CrossBooks Writing Contest. One grand prize winner will receive a free CrossBooks Marketing Plus publishing package valued at $4,499, which includes a press announcement, an on-camera author interview and placement on the CrossBooks website homepage.
"Last year was our first year for this contest, and it was a huge success," said Selma Wilson, president of B&H Publishing Group. "We encourage all Christian authors with an interest in self-publishing their work to take the first step in sharing their message of faith by participating in the CrossBooks writing contest."
The 2013 CrossBooks writing contest allows aspiring authors to submit an unpublished Christian-themed manuscript at least 10,000 words in length. The contest is open to legal residents of the United States 21 years of age or older at the time of entry. Submissions must be received by January 15, 2014 and pass a theological review. The winners of the writing contest will be notified and posted on crossbooks.com on April 15, 2014.
"To any author that’s considering making a submission to the writing contest, I say do it," said Stacy Navarro, author of Hand Over Your Heart and winner of the 2012 CrossBooks writing contest. "It’s easy to second-guess yourself and think, ‘who am I?’ Well, who am I? I thought the same thing as a stay-at-home mom of four. At the same time, I didn’t want to die wondering. I didn’t want to never know. You’ve been given that gift and that desire for a reason—use it."
