Stella Cameron’s Scarlet Boa Contest 2006...
Sharpen up your action skills to write a scene where hero and villain face off in a potentially deadly scene. The heroine may be present or not, included in the action, or not.
The Scarlet Boa contest is open to published and non-published authors alike. Submit your entry (approximately 500 words). We'll accept submissions until September 1st and start posting links to them below.
So who's going to judge this thing? You are! Scenes will be judged by readers—who knows better what makes them tingle?
The author of the winning scene will receive (apart from kudos, bragging rights and press coverage) the coveted Scarlet Boa, a gorgeous red feather boa that will simply scream "I write Romance!" (well, it will scream something). And since we can't leave out the judges, one lucky voter's name will be drawn at random and they'll receive a sumptious white boa to wear while reading their new romance novels.
