We are looking for the next Star Tribune serial novel. Send the first chapter of your unpublished (print or digital) completed manuscript. If we like it, we'll ask for more. We prefer, but do not require, a Minnesota setting and a Minnesota author. E-mail Chapter 1 to books@ startribune.com. We'll accept entries through Oct. 31.
