I've not posted many competition links lately, but I do have excuses of sorts, and I have some free to enter competitions for you today.
The excuse first – We're travelling in our campervan in fairly remote Scottish locations, which means internet access isn't always available.
Also I've been attempting some promotion stuff for my new novel, Acting Like A Killer. I'm spectacularly bad at this, so if you can help at all with spreading the word, that will be very much appreciated.
Now the competitions ...
This one from Hamer is for lyrical non-fiction of up to 500 words from UK writers who are over 40 and haven't had a book published by a trade publisher. Top prize is £250.
For this one you need to write a lot more words and include a serious crime. The prize is a $10,000 advance.
The Commonwealth short story prize offers regional winners £2,500 and £5,000 for the overall winner.
