Mystery Minotaurs

I may have mentioned this one previously, but it's a good one if you happen to be an unpublished author with a completed crime novel. The prize is a $10,000 advance.

We recently went on a minor tour of Wales and thanks to some creative navigation on my part, our route was at times a bit of a mystery.

(Yes, I know but have you any idea how hard it is to photograph a real minotaur?)

Seems some people are having trouble with the link, so here's the full address - http://us.macmillan.com/minotaurbooks/writing-competitions

  1. After I ended up wandering in a local preserve for three hours (extra), my wife bought me a small tablet so I'll always know where I am. Now if all the park trails were on the map, it would be dandy. And it helps if I pin my starting location. (usually forget that part).

    1. Knowing where you started from is probably quite useful, Mac.

  2. Just wander into the nearest pub and the bartender will help you out with a Guiness and difections to the next pub.

    1. Are you thinking of Ireland, Oscar? That form of navigation works quite well over there.

  3. Oh, I forgot to ask, what the heck is a minotaur, a miniature dinosaur?

    1. It's a mythical monster with bullish tendencies which lives in a maze - apparently. I've been in mazes and never encountered them, but they might hide.

  4. I wondered that as well, Oscar. Like the picture. Is it a castle relic?

    1. It is, Suzy. I climbed up to the top of the still standing bit. It's higher than it looks.

  5. Hi Patsy - love the play on words ... clever! A minotaur in Wales - highly possible, though he too probably got lost coming from Ancinet Greece ... $10,000 would be good! Cheers and enjoy what at the moment is a sunny morning ... Hilary

    1. Can't blame him, Hilary - mazes are easy to get lost in.

  6. I love Wales - we've been to the north several times as sis-in-law and her husband live there!
