1. When in doubt, SEND YOUR SUBMISSION IN PLAIN TEXT.
2. You get ONE submission. Make sure it looks the way you want it to BEFORE you hit "send."
3. The submission address is authoress.submissions(at)gmail.com. (Yes, I still get stuff sent to the wrong address and it makes me sad!)
4. Are there colons after SCREEN NAME, TITLE, and GENRE?
5. Did you remove your sig line? (Hotmail's is irremovable but no longer a problem.)
6. This contest is for CHAPTER BOOK, MG, and YA only. DO NOT SEND SUBMISSIONS FOR ADULT NOVELS. (And don't call your adult novel "YA" just to get in the contest. My Secret Agents are SHARP. They can tell.)
7. Please remember that there are TWO submission windows. Each window will accept 25 entries and 1 alternate.
8. That's it, really!
