It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

Competition Countdown – flash and it’s gone…

Click on me for even more information!

Time to write over Easter?  You have 10 days to go before the Flashbang, crime flash fiction competition closes on April 15.


1st prize is two weekend passes to CrimeFest 2012 (access to all interviews, panels and receptions, Thursday through Sunday, excluding accommodation, dinner & travel).

2nd prize is a boxed set of seasons 1 and 2 of The Killing plus a signed copy of David Hewson’s new novelisation.

3rd prize is a selection of four books from Hersilia Press who (in agreement with the authors) will publish appropriate stories on their site.

Five runners up will each receive a copy of MO: Crimes of Practice published by Comma Press on behalf of the CWA.

Easter Tip: you can eat chocolate eggs and write at the same time.  But keep the creamy variety away from your keyboard.

    My muse won´t cooperate, but you can have my best effort for free 😉

    Killing Arty Mugworth

    “Are you ready for the first question?”
    Plonk. Arty Mugworth´s face landed slap-bang right in the middle of his shepherd´s pie, and his pint of Old Peculiar spattered across the table.
    “Come on, let´s have it,” a jittery woman hissed.
    “Shouldn´t we just check if Arty´s okay first?” Peaty Gotright tried.
    “Nope. Let´s get on with it.” All the concentrated pub guests shook their heads, some quite vehemently.
    “What was the name of Philip Marlowe´s first girlfriend?” Gotright asked.
    At the table next to Arty´s, Vera Stronghope shrugged a few drops of Old Peculiar off her crumpled mac.
    “Finally a fair chance to win this year´s pub quiz, pet” she whispered to Charlie Fox next to her.

        I´m glad you like it, but as you can see, it is more of an in-joke than an independent story.
