Crime pays

Sorry, there's not much time left to enter this competition. It's a good one so I thought it was worth mentioning despite that.

If you happen to have an unpublished crime novel of at least 50,000 words, are over 18 and live in the UK and would like £10,000 to help towards having it published as an ebook, take a look here.

Hopefully they'll be no crime at Elmore Angling Club's Christmas Fair tomorrow. I'll be there (Lee-on-the-Solent seafront) selling my books from 10am to 2pm. It's free entry, so if you happen to be in the area, do pop in and say hello. I'll give you a free bookmark if I have any left.

Hi Patsy - does sound good ... I guess I should write one and bring it back with me for a future 'contest' ... cheers Hilary

PS Good Luck with the book signing ... sounds fun - if the weather is reasonable ...

I'm intrigued as to how it could possibly cost £10,000 to publish an e-book!

That's a chunk. I'm wondering the same thing as Julia! I have a crime story, but I'm not sure it's ready to go out and I've learned that rushing never works out well. Thanks for the information, though. There may be another opportunity. Great to meet you, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Good luck with the sales, Patsy. I hope you manage to hook your readers at the angling club. (See what I did there?)

Sounds like a great opportunity for someone who has an unpublished crime novel. That's a nice sum of money! Hope you sold lots of books at the Christmas Fair today, Patsy.

Patsy said...

Good plan, Hilary.

Patsy said...

I'm guessing that covers things like editing and marketing, not just converting the file.

Patsy said...

They don't always have such a good prize, but other similar opportunities are reaonably common.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Julie.

Patsy said...

I do Keith - it was a good line...

Yep, good opportunity for someone in the right position to benefit.
