First Kiss--Call for Submissions

It's been almost a year since we've had a First Kiss critique round, so let's have some fun!

  • Send your First Kiss scene (up to 300 words) with a brief (25-word) lead-in to give us some grounding.
  • Please remember that this is a PG-13 blog. Nothing beyond a kiss will be accepted.
  • The scene can be an almost-kiss, if you have one of those.
  • Enter HERE.
  • The submission window happens TOMORROW, April 1 (not, I'm not fooling you), noon to 5:00 PM EDT. This will be a LOTTERY.
  • The bot will choose 20 entries, plus 1 alternate.
  • Entries will post for critique on Wednesday, April 2.
  • This critique round is open to finished and unfinished novels, and to agented and unagented authors.
Note: PLEASE DON'T NEGLECT TO INCLUDE YOUR 25-word lead-in to the scene.  It makes a big difference, knowing where we're being dropped into a story.

Please also take the time to CHECK YOUR ENTRY before hitting "enter".  


Please type your 25-word lead-in in italics.  Then double space before beginning your excerpt.

The excerpt will begin here.  There will be lots of kissing.

Post your questions below!
