Submit Your NaNoWriMo Novel to Avon Impulse: NaNoWriMo Tip #5

Are you writing a romance for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)? You can submit your manuscript to Avon Impulse after the writing marathon.

Editors at HarperCollins’ Avon Books are looking for NaNoWriMo romance novels, sponsoring “National Romance Writing Month”–encouraging writers submit their work directly to the imprint. Check it out:

Avon editors will make themselves available to the author community via online forums at www.nanowrimo.org, and by sponsoring “NaRoWriMo,”  the publisher hopes to acquire original works of romantic fiction, to be released in 2013 by Avon Impulse.  ”NaRoWriMo” romance fiction submissions should be submitted by December 10, 2012 to Avon Romance’s online submission portal (www.avonimpulse.com), and tagged “NaRoWriMo.”  All novel and novella-length submissions (50,000 words and above) will be reviewed, and will be considered for publication through Avon Impulse, the publisher’s digital-first arm.

This is our fifth NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
