Competitions and Giveaways


In 2012 Raging Aardvark Publishing produced a book called New Sun Rising, an anthology of stories to raise money for the survivors of the March 11th 2011 triple disaster in Japan. An extract from my unpublished novel Dog Mountain was included and so began our relationship.

Every year to celebrate International Flash Fiction Day they run a flash fiction competition called Twisted Tales. Thirteen winners are included in an anthology and this year I am lucky enough to be involved as a guest judge. As part of the process Head Editor Annie Evett posted a short profile / interview with me. You can read it here and learn more about the competition here. It closes on June 9th so get writing.

Second piece of news is that Freight Books and I are giving away five free copies of Silma Hill on Goodreads. The giveaway runs until June 30th and is open only to people living in the UK (for obvious postage reasons). Head on over to Goodreads and give Silma Hill a click. There are few things in this world better than a book as a present.

Lastly, have a read of this piece by the ever brilliant Ursula K. Le Guin on the sacred and profane machine that is Amazon.
