Single Title Romance Judges
who have all finished !
MANY published inspirational romances focus on characters who do not have faith at the beginning of the story; instead, the story is about them developing faith. Our score sheet does not necessarily reflect this reality as well as it should. So, for our purposes, think of the category-specific question as being about whether there is a foundation for a journey of faith as well as a journey of romance.
There is no rule that states the hero and heroine should physically meet in the first chapter. It is commonplace in Series romance that at least both characters are introduced. We’ve based our score sheet as if the reader would be introduced to both the hero and heroine in the first 5000 words. With the somewhat faster pace of the series romance, we would hope that the reader can obtain a sense of the characters and where the story is headed.
Series Romance normally has a faster pace than single title since the word count is often much less. This pacing may not refer to action on the page. It might refer to less time spent addressing an issue.
