News just in from the States (for the benefit of US readers of this blog):
"In conjunction with the chilling new series Murder by the Book, Court TV is asking aspiring crime writers to submit an original idea for a crime fiction novel and sample chapter(s) to be reviewed by a panel of judges (made up of best-selling authors Jonathan Kellerman, Faye Kellerman and Lisa Scottoline as well as publisher Judith Regan). The winner will receive a book deal with Regan. It’s really straightforward and easy to enter. Just go to www.courttv.com/aspiringwriter for all of the details."
Regan is an imprint of HarperCollins.
The contest ends on November 27th and is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia. For the official rules see here.
Good luck to all who enter!
