December already! It's the time of year when I start thinking that I really should try and get organised for next year. To help with that, please let me know what kind of writing related content you'd like included on this blog. I don't promise to act on every single suggestion, but if a large number of people all want the same thing I'll do my best to provide it.
In the #PFWritingHour yesterday it was confirmed that The People's Friend 'always' want 3,000 word stories.
For those who've not come across it, the #PFWritingHour is a twitter event from 11 to 12 every Tuesday. It's usually good fun.
Free entry competition news
This competition from Anansi Archives offers small cash prizes for flash fiction, poetry and short stories. The good news is that it's quarterly, the bad news that the current competition closes at midnight tonight.
You've got a lot longer for this one, which is just as well as they're looking for up to 8,000 words of realistic science fiction. There's a prize bundle including paid publication.
This competition is for Valentine's poems and offers £100 in vouchers as the prize.
My news (just in case you've missed it!)
My latest novel is now out! Acting Like A Killer is a cosy, romantic murder mystery, set in Falmouth (West country) and Lee-on-the-Solent (south coast of England). There's a dog in it, and castles, cake, the seaside, friendship, birds, flowers ... all the good stuff.
