I agree 100% with Janet Reid. Writers need to look out for these type of contests and let people know. Drop by a writer's forum and drop in a quick post. Send links here to The Novel Road and I'll help get the word out. E-mail the people responsible for the contests and let them know you and others are watching.
Who was it that said: "All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing..."
We should all thank Janet for bringing this to our attention. This is why she is one of the very, very best agents in the industry.
