SILKEN SANDS Self-Published Contest Deadline Nears

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE:  Due to technical issues with our web server, the Gulf Coast Chapter is extending the deadline for the 2012 Silken Sands Self-Published Star Contest. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 PM CST Saturday, January 7, 2012.

Questions may be sent to gccstarcontest@…, which is unaffected byour website difficulties. Thank you for your patience and support!

Original Official  Notice from Gulf Coast RWA: The deadline to enter the Silken Sands Self-Published Star award is January 5th – that’s this Thursday SATURDAY JANUARY 7th !! If you have a self-published work with an original publication date of 2011, there’s still time to enter! The winners will be featured in an upcoming issue of the RWR and highlighted on the Gulf Coast RWA’s website, and will receive both a Starfish award and a winner graphic for use on book covers or websites.

Unofficial note from Rita Bay:  AS A BONUS (not included in the contest rules), the Sizzlers – all Gulf Coast RWR members – will also feature the list of finalists on our Southern Sizzle Romance blog . After the winners are announced at our Silken Sands Conference in March, category winners will have their blurbs and excerpts and buy link featured on our blog which has a national and international following — probably because of the pics we feature with our blogs.  (Check out that fireman!)
