The folks over at JournalStone are holding a contest for your cherished horror manuscript. A full-length novel contest is not something I’ve seen before in this contest where the winner gets the contract the advance ($2,000) and so forth. Seems a bit odd to me, but then again, I am still learning this business. If you have a horror manuscript that’s finished you may want to get into this. However, I’d double-check who JournalStone has published, what their sales are and what their contract terms are. DEFINITELY run the contract through a copyright lawyer before you sign (assuming you win) The deadlines is June 1st and they want manuscripts over 75,000 words.
On a side-note, their site looks pretty good and it appears as if they do maintain a blog and a list of literary agents. Their stock just went up in my opinion.
