Turn to A Treasure Trove of Golden Heart Advice
This is Golden Heart season, the perfect time to force yourself to finish that manuscript and enter it in the Golden Heart. We at the WNP are great believers in the power of the GH contest; we came together because of the contest, after all!
We have some great advice about the GH for you to turn to. In 2007, our blog focused on the Golden Heart and we had some pretty spectacular advice to offer. The great news is, it's STILL available to you.
Keep in mind, though, that this is 2007 advice. Pay close attention to the 2010 Golden Heart rules to make sure that what we said is still true.
Here's why you should enter the Golden Heart:

That should get you started! There is more, though. To find our previous Golden Heart advice, scroll down all the way on this page and look at the right for Blog Archives. Our Golden Heart focus was Oct through Dec 2007, but there are some under Oct 2008, too.
I urge you to turn to this treasure chest. You won't be sorry.
If any questions arise, ask them here and I'll try to answer. It will help if you reference which blog your question is from. Or ask a general question. I'm easy....
My website now has an excerpt of Gallant Officer, Forbidden Lady and a new contest!
