I don’t usually share my Frances di Plino blog posts here, but as this one is aimed at writers it seems appropriate to do so.
The following post has just gone live on the Crime and Thriller Review site. Good luck to anyone who decides to enter.
Calling all writers – would you like to win a free critique of your work (fiction or non-fiction) worth £30? Yes? Then this is the competition for you to enter. NO ENTRY FEE OR PURCHASE NECESSARY. All you need to do to be in with a chance of having up to 3,000 words critiqued absolutely free of charge is answer one simple question – and I’ll even tell you where to find the answer!
To celebrate the paperback launch of Bad Moon Rising, published by Crooked Cat Publishing on Friday 12 October, my alter ego Lorraine Mace is offering to critique up to 3,000 words, something for which she would normally charge £30. Full details of what to expect can be found on her critique page.
To enter the competition you need only send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the name and nickname of the pub in Bradchester which features in Bad Moon Rising. You don’t even have to buy the book, as you can find the answer by reading the opening chapters via the ‘Look Inside’ feature on any Amazon site.
Make sure you put BAD MOON RISING PAPERBACK COMPETITION in the subject line so that your email is logged correctly. Each email will be given a number as it arrives and on Friday 12 October the numbers will be put into a large bowl. My husband will be given the onerous task of picking a winning number from the bowl.
The winner will be announced on this website on paperback launch day – so don’t hang about. Get reading and send me an email with the answer. Don’t forget, you have to give the name of the pub and its nickname. If you only give one of them your entry will not count.
