Would you like to get your unpublished romance novel in front of the editors at Harlequin and Mills & Boone, a romance publisher with a global readership? Then start polishing your first draft because Harlequin's writing boot camp and big writing competition is about to begin. I've quoted below a few details from the Harlequin site.
