HarperCollins writing contest

If you're already thinking about self-publishing your book, and if your book's got a killer first line, you may want to look into this contest. 

Here's the link for the full article on the Authonomy Summer Competition. In a nutshell, HarperCollins and their sponsors will award one winner with a book cover, a review from one of the HC editors, a book trailer, and an epresskit. 

I'm not sure what that last one is, since my eyes often glaze over whenever I see an "e" or "i" in front of a word, but it could be useful, I suppose.

If you're interested in entering, you'll need to comment on the competition's page with the first line of your book.  The catch is, you need to have an Authonomy account to enter, though it's free to join, and it can be a good site for writers who are interested in giving and receiving feedback. 

I've been a member for almost a year now.

The deadline for entries is September 8th, 2013.
