Welcome to our brand new Medical Romance writing Fast-Track. Starting on Monday 24th March!  

Send your submission to the Medical Romance team and get a response in 24 hours!

If you love strong and sexy medical heroes and heroines, then the Medical Romance team is waiting to read your first chapter!

We’re looking for fresh, new, innovative voices, so send us your first chapter and a synopsis to 24hoursinM& and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours!

Medical Romance submissions received between Monday 24th March and Thursday 24th April 2014 will receive a response within 1 day, from acknowledgement of receipt (sadly we don’t work weekends! So if you submit on Friday, you’ll receive an answer on Monday).

At the end of the month, the Medical team will choose their favourite 3 chapters to go through to a public vote and the chance to win guaranteed mentoring with a Medical series editor*. The Top 3 chapters will go live on the Mills & Boon website on Monday 28th April and the winner will be announced on Friday 2nd May 2014.

So send us your Medical Romance! Sheila, Laurie and Charlotte can’t wait to triage your chapter!
