It occurred to me that some of those now receiving this missive may not know that all of the advertising in the Winter Edition and Spring Edition was/is FREE. Why do I bring up at this moment? I have spots left that I would love to fill. With the hope of supporting small business, I am offering real professional advertising service for FREE. There are spaces for editors, author coaches, artists, cover designers, cover reveals, upcoming/recent releases, publishing houses, graphic designers, booktubers, and more. For more information, send your business information to firstname.lastname@example.org . I am so excited to see what you send me! (Side Note: If you had an Editor Listing in the Winter Edition it has already been included in the Spring Edition. Every other business should have already been contacted.)
Deadline is February 12th
for Advertising, Voting for the Book Fan Art Contest, and Submissions for the Cover Art Contest (See This Week's Community Activity below). I do want to give you a short bit of exciting news. I am now more than certain that Clean Fiction's Spring Edition 2022 is going to be longer than 100 pages. Sifting through a mammoth amount of emails and submissions from our reviewers this last week, I was shocked to realize that we were most likely going to have more than half the magazine full of reviews and articles. I am current sitting at 62 pages of reviews and articles and I am no where near done. This makes me exceedingly excited! You guys are going to love it!
Voting is FREE and does not require you to enter your name or email address. Clean Fiction contests are meant to be fun! Share your favorites with your friends and family. Encourage them to pick their favorite as well. We had the largest response EVER to our last contest and we can't wait to see how many of you participate in this one! Visit cleanfictionmagazine.com and click on "Vote" or follow this direct link: https://www.sunsetvalleycreations.com/vote
Voting ends on February 12th so don't wait!
Wishing all of you the best this week!

Cover Art Contest Submissions
For the March 20th Spring Edition, we will be holding another Cover Art Contest for all of you to participate in. This was the contest that had the most entrants and we anticipate it to be a popular contest again. We ask that you stick to CLEAN Cover Art. That means absolutely no shirtless/headless men. For the love of chocolate pudding! Why is a cover like that a fad anyway!?! That goes for shirtless/headless women too, but I think that probably goes without saying...Can a cover DESIGNER participate? Of course. Can an author participate even if they did not design their cover? Yep. Is there a limit on the number of covers that I submit? Please, only send one cover per person/design company. Does it matter what genre the book is? No, unless...see previous comment about shirtlessness. Submissions will begin February 1st and end February 12th. Voting will begin February 13th and go through February 26th. (See our website for the small print) We are limiting the voting to 10 submissions that will be selected by the Clean Fiction staff. Otherwise, the voting page might go on forever. The winner will receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card and the other nine voted on covers will be ranked and included in the magazine similarly to what you see on the previous page. The winner will also receive a certificate that they can print out and hang on their wall, book cave, library nook...you get the idea. How do I enter? Simply email CleanFictionMagazine@gmail.com the following: Your Cover Art, Your Name, Name/s of the Cover Artist, Title/Author of the Book (if it is not clearly visible in the image), and an Email Address (for contact purposes).
