Calling all Fiction Writers!

cat-3842408_640

I came across this in Writers’ Forum magazine (Dec 2018). A novel-writing competition, sponsored by Your Cat magazine. The first prize is a three-book deal. The genres can be romance, fantasy, historical, thriller or a Christmas story! But get this, there has to be a cat in your story! Yes, you have read right, be sure your novel features a feline to qualify for the competition!

The competition is open to new writers only (unpublished), however your manuscript must be assessed by an editorial service first.

The deadline for this competition is 28 February 2019! Not a great deal of time, would obviously suit someone whose manuscript is READY!

More details can be obtained here: https://www.choc-lit.com/

All the best of luck!

Like any very hopeful, aspiring writer, reading a vast amount of books, as many as you can get your hands on, is a must.  And, as if life is not busy enough, there are all the e-books around! These make me wish I had two (maybe three) pairs of eyes and not just one! Continue reading “Calling All Crime Fiction Book Lovers”

Hello and Welcome

fully-supported-800px

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s chiefly a writer’s den written by me Sharon a new writer who has a somewhat considered opinion on many things.  Watch this space as I ramble on about anything that has niggled me, enlightened me, or just given me a little laugh.  Life, can make you cry as well as laugh!  I hope there are more laughs along the way!

I will let you know what I have been up to, what I am working on and what I am reading. Any books, short stories or anything that I particularly enjoyed I’ll pass on.  And of course if I get that oh-so-elusive book deal, I’ll be sure to let you know.

So watch this space.

Until next time

Happy Writing! S
