Win a book deal

If you'd like to win a publishing deal and $1,000 cash, take a look at this competition. This competition is only open to those who've not previously had a novel published or 'released to the public'.

That means I can't enter. I would if I could.

Updated - Sorry, I've only just realised that this competition is only available to people currently living in Ireland.

It's tempting to think that nobody ever wins these things, but I know it's possible. A few years ago I entered, and won, a novel writing competition. Sadly the company has since ceased trading, but the
book is still available.

That's very cool you won. Proves it can happen.

Hi Patsy,
Thanks for info.
Just had a look at this but looks like it's only open to residents of Ireland.

It does, Alex.

You're right, Sue! I noticed the 'open to writers of any age or nationality' bit, but not that they must live in Ireland.

Clearly once I realised I couldn't enter, I didn't pay full attention. I do read MUCH more carefully before entering a competition.

Ooh, that made me prick my ears up as I live in Ireland! Sadly, not only is my book far from finished - it's a non-fiction story about my years in Fiji, so wouldn't be eligible anyway. Ah well...

It's a good opportunity for someone to be sure.

I'm moving!

Maybe I can find you a competition for a non fiction book, Susan - I'll try.

Patsy said...

Ah, to be sure! (Not that either of us would ever resort to stereotyping!)

Come back - there are comps for writers living in other places too, Wendy.
