Yes to both questions, Amy. I think we say in the Terms and Conditions that if you have a prologue or introduction, that can be included as well as the first chapter.Sparrow wrote:Thinking of entering my NaNo novel... couple of question. If I have a half-page prologue, can I submit both that and the first chapter?
Also, am I allowed to submit the story to the contest and then send it to an agent before waiting for the results of the contest?
And absolutely to the second question. Don't hang around for a year waiting for the results to come in. If your manuscript is ready to be submitted to an agent, go for it. It won't make a difference if your book is picked up after you've entered it. It just can't be in print before you enter.
After all the hard work of NaNo, this is really a great way to take it one more step.
