Passionate Plume is back. After having to cancel the contest last year, the Passionate Ink board is committed to bringing back our contest and recognizing outstanding erotic romance novels published in 2019 and 2020. But that means we need judges.
Who should judge?
You! Readers of erotic romance. Writers of erotic romance. Lovers of erotic romance. You know the sex scenes are pivotal to the story and character arcs. You know that you will get a happily ever after or at least a happy for now. You know what you love to read.
But I want to enter!
No problem. We still want you as a judge, we’ll just make sure you’re judging a category that you aren’t entering.
I’m not sure I have the time.
We’re only asking you to read three books and fill out a short survey on each one. As a romance reader, you’re likely reading that many books in the same time frame now. And these are current books in your favorite genre.
I’m uncomfortable leaving reviews.
The judges remain anonymous and the score sheets won’t be shared with the authors unless you’re judging the virgin category. In that case, the feedback will still be anonymous.
If you still have concerns, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need great judges to bring this great contest back to life. You are that great judge!
