The 5th SPFBO is closed to entries!
Entries are listed on the phase 1 page.
- Entries can be emailed to me from 12 noon GMT on June 15th.
- Do not send anything before that date. It will not count.

- One book is allowed per author.
- No book that has previously been in the SPFBO can be re-entered.
- The book must be book 1 of a series or a stand-alone novel.
- No anthologies.
- Fantasy books only. You can decide what fantasy is but if it isn't … it won't do well.
- Books must be 40,000 words or longer.
- It doesn't matter how long the book has been published for.
- The manuscript you submit will be the one entered - it can't be updated or corrected for the judges.
