I want to give a personal shoutout to @khudecek for pushing me to take this chance. Without her words of encouragement, I don't know if I would've entered. So thank you, khudecek, too! :)
Not a problem, hsimone. Thank you for your comments on the Book of the Month forum. :)

Who on the "Online book club"; could I talk to or send a synopsis of book ideas to.
If this is possible, could some one please provide me with the contact details.
I enjoy participating in the forums; and am a novice at these
But every one's views appear to be respected which is a great aspect of this club.

There should be a 2017 Publishing Contest! Maybe there is and I just haven't seen it yet. If not, this is an amazing opportunity for writers on the site who need help in publishing their books or even ones who haven't finished writing theirs yet.

@Amagine The 2016 contest went really well. What I'm thinking is doing it again but instead of having an end date I can make it into an ongoing thing, so that books that aren't chosen can continue to collect votes indefinitely.

I think that is a great idea! That way,writers who aren't chosen will still have an opportunity to promote their work and be published. What time frame are you thinking of starting this?
