So I read mostly romance, and I follow the publisher Hachette on facebook. They’re one of the few romance publishers who took a stand on ebooks and refused to undercut their authors by offering super cheap ebooks.
Well, I see a facebook ad for a Hachette contest. I love me some books, and I click it. It’s a competition for new writers to submit their works... and the “prizes” are to get their works reviewed by editors.
Jackwagons, that’s using a “contest” to just have your editors do their job. And those poor editors will probably be inundated with stuff. Betcha they are trying to snag some writers who would otherwise self-publish on Amazon.
