The dark side.

If you can write a short (up to 7,500 words) crime or thriller story, you may be interested in this competition. The best 12 entries will be published in a collection from which the authors will earn royalties. As usual, with the competitions I blog about, it's free to enter. 

Not sure anything I write will be dark enough, but I intend to have a go.

Hi Patsy - good luck with your dark story line ... there's a Write-Edit-Publish challenge in October - the prompt is 'Darkness' ... could do that too.

I think that's Inveraray Castle - a place I'd love to visit ... you must have had a glorious time ... cheers Hilary

I don't know why, but this competition is catching my imagination. No idea if I'd actually be able to write something worth publishing in less than a month, but we'll see. :-)

Hi human, Patsy,

I'm sure you'll come up with something dark. All the beast, sorry, all the best.

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny

Good luck, Patsy - I think the rules for the competition are the best I've ever seen :-) I specially like rules 5 and 6!

Rosemary Gemmell said...

That looks good, Patsy - don't know if I'll be able to finish something in time!

It sounds like a great opportunity for writers who like to write dark crime/thrillers, Patsy.

Yes rules 5 & 6 are good. :D

Patsy said...

You're in the right area, Hilary - it's Culzean Castle.

Patsy said...

Have a try - if you don't get it done in time you can send it elsewhere later on.

The spots on a dalmatian, perhaps?

Patsy said...

I do think they wrote their own, rather than getting a lawyer to do it as often seems to be the case.

Patsy said...

I've cheated and only used half the word count!

Patsy said...

Yes.

and

Yes.
