Maggie says in her email: We are going to remove the branding and re-launch the novels in a special display unit on magazine shelves in October. We are planning to publish four a month, so I am going to need lots of new novels – many of them from the followers of Womagwriter, I hope! (I hope so, too! Do let me know of your successes.)
Email entire manuscript (50,000 words) or synopsis and first 3 chapters to email@example.com
I have emailed Maggie to ask if there'll be any change in the pay rate, and will let you know. Edited - I've heard back from Maggie. They are going to introduce a progressive pay rate where the pay goes up with each novel bought from a writer. I'm assuming (she didn't say) that the starting point will still be £300. This is very encouraging!
