Bits and pieces

1.  If you're into  writing children's stories, check out the latest Walker Books/Mumsnet competition which closes on 30th November. Details here.

2.  I posted calls for submission some time back from Writers Abroad, who were putting together a charity anthology of work by ex-pat writers. Foreign Encounters has now been published, and is available to buy here. Proceeds go to Books Abroad, a charity dedicated to getting free books into schools around the world.

3.  A new short story competition launches on Monday - the Sophie King prize. This one is specifically looking for writers of romantic short stories, it's free to enter and you have until January 10th.

4.  Finally, a little plug for a book by a fellow womag writer - this should appeal to anyone who likes country music. Douglas McPherson has published his novel Nashville Cinderella which is available for Kindle here and itunes here.

5.  And finally finally, if I'm plugging Douglas's book I really ought to plug Della Galton's books too - she has been publishing her short stories in collections of five for Kindle, under the series title Daily Della. Here's a link to Love on the Rocks. They're perfect to download to your Kindle for reading in any spare minute. (The latest publication is A Perfect Murder - a collection of twist-ending stories and is currently FREE to download!)

Huge thanks, womag - yet again, a post full of treasures! Synopses of Della's short story collections are fascinating - she must have ideas constantly ricocheting round her head!

Thank you for sharing, I like the sound of the Sophie King competition. :-)

Della Galton said...

thank you very much Kath, again. And Dolores, some of my ideas are very dubious - like the one I just had for the write on site competition sadly :(
