It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

Major competition for budding novelists

From today’s The Bookseller:

‘Good Housekeeping has launched a £25,000 competition for budding novelists in association with Orion and agent Luigi Bonomi.

The competition appears in the magazine’s January issue, which goes on sale today (1st December).

Good Housekeeping is looking for previously unpublished writers in any genre apart from children’s, with first prize a £25,000 advance, help from the Orion editorial team and Bonomi, and the chance to have the winning book published with coverage in the magazine.

The judges will include Kate Mosse, Bonomi, Orion fiction publishing director Kate Mills and Good Housekeeping editorial director Lindsay Nicholson.’

    Such a shame I don’t have any aspirations to be an author. At least all the NaNoWriMo people will be ready to submit their entries. I wonder how well resourced the mag. will be to deal with the huge number of entries they will inevitably receive!

      Excellent point, Sue. The perfectly-timed competition for NaNos!
