  1. Hi Helen,

    I’ve sent you a message three times at this email address and my AIP is telling me “The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.”


  2. Eleni, I had the same problem. Imelda, I’ll send ot you if that’s OK. Thanks.

  3. Imelda, your mailbox is full!

    • heavens to Betsy, that shouldn’t even be possible! There is a dark star over the email links for this contest! However the contest email is fixed now, Anna, so you’re good to go!

  4. RWA Covers Contest email is now fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  5. What are the genre categories to begin with???? What is the closest to contemporary women’s fiction – do they have to be romance genres?

    • Jenn, if you are a member with a book out in 2013, you can enter your cover. If it’s contemp women’s fiction, say so. I imagine that the categories will be settled when we have all the entries. This is an internal competition, so it’s more about what works for our members books, rather than pre-set categories.

      • exactly what Queen Imelda said. We don’t have pre-set categories but it’s handy to have the category the book falls in to help establish the categories.

  6. Oh, cool. I was hoping i could enter. Thank you, guys.

  7. Exciting! Have entered. 🙂

  8. Hi everyone, please not that updated criteria – self-published titles aren’t eligible to enter, sorry.
