Books on sale #crime

The first four D.I. Paolo books, Bad Moon Rising, Someday Never Comes, Call it Pretending and Looking for a Reason by Frances di Plino (my crime pen name) are all reduced to only 99p each for the next few days. Great way to get your mitts on a book series without breaking the bank!

Blurb and link for Bad Moon Rising, the first in the series:
One more soul is safe.
Brought up believing sex is the devil’s work, a killer only finds release once he has saved his victims’ souls. Abiding by his vision, he marks them as his. A gift to guide his chosen ones on the rightful path to redemption.
Detective Inspector Paolo Storey is out to stop him, but Paolo has problems of his own. Hunting down the killer as the death toll rises, the lines soon blur between Paolo’s personal and professional lives.

Writing Competition News #amwriting

Flash Fiction Winners
The flash fiction winning entries for the second quarter 2017 have been announced. You can read the stories here. Thank you to our judge JJ Marsh for tackling two quarters in a row!
 
I would like to welcome our judge for this quarter: Chris Curran. This category is open and already attracting entries: flash fiction
 
For the Novel Writers
The Novel Opening and Synopsis category is open for entries until the end of October, so there is plenty of time for you to fine tune those opening chapters. As for the synopsis, it's one of my least favourite tasks, but so satisfying when it finally comes together. Our regular judges, the senior editors at Crooked Cat Books, are on standby to look for the gems.
 
Short Story Category
Don't forget, if you have any longer stories (up to 3,000 words), our short story category is open for entries until 28th February 2018: short story.
 
For information on all three categories, visit the Flash 500 Homepage.
 
Kind regards,
 

Lorraine
