I have entered a novel contest. If you have an interest, please go to the link below and vote for my chapter.

Information about the contest is listed below.

The first chapter of your submission to the First Chapters Writing Competition on is now live. The link below is the unique URL to your first chapter which has been posted for Round 1 consideration. You can send this link to your friends, family, and colleagues so that they can read, rate, and comment on your work!

Your Round 1 Unique URL:

During Round 1, the first chapter of your submission (link provided above) will remain live on the site at for fourteen (14) days from the date it was published. At the end of that voting period we will remove the chapter from Gather and tally the votes. To complete your competition eligibility, please double-check to ensure that you are a member of First Chapters Writing Competition Group.

If you would like to invite your friends, family and colleagues to read and rate your submission they must:

1. Join so they can vote on your chapter. Make sure to send them a join link.

2. Click on your chapter’s unique link (send out the link provided above) where they can read and then rate your first chapter.

Note on voting: To ensure the integrity of contests on Gather we have developed fraud detection systems to monitor rating/voting patterns as well as member account validity. We run the processes periodically throughout the contest and again at the end of the contest, across all entries. If we determine that certain ratings or actions are intended to compromise the outcome of the contest we will take appropriate actions which can include disqualifying the ratings, entrants and submissions. Therefore, rating averages can change throughout the contest period. Entrants are eligible to vote in the Competition but are expected to do so fairly and in the spirit of the competition.
