“This is not love …”

I hope no-one else had a bad head after the launch party. I knew I shouldn’t have finished that last bottle of Champagne after every one had gone. And I feel like celebrating all over again now because someone’s given me a really nice review on Amazon.

Anyway, basking in past glories won’t get the next book done. So how about a tight deadline to get the creative juices flowing?

Litro are running a free flash fiction competition. They want up to 1000 words from the prompt, “This is not love …”.

Entries should not have been previously published anywhere and the closing date is 7th Feb 2013 (entry is on-line). The winner will be announced on 14th February.

The winner and the two runners-up will have their stories published on the Litro website and the overall winner will receive three beautiful Clothbound Classics editions of Alice in Wonderland, Hard Times and Bleak House, supplied by Penguin.

Full details are here.

You’ve got 7 days – go for it!

    I found the virtual champagne left no horrible after effects, and I’m sure was calorie free too. Bonus 🙂
    Have downloaded the collection Sally and the first story made me smile. Will post a review when finished.

      That’s brilliant – really grateful, Tracy.

    I’m writing what is supposed to be a romantic story at the moment – only it’s not going very well. Perhaps I should make a few changes and enter it in this comp … Thanks for the link, Sally!
    (I really like the look of the book prizes.)

    Well done on the review Sally, I’m sure you’ll get loads more when we’ve all read them. I’ll be downloading and reading when I’ve caught up with the ones already on my pc kindle. Thanks for the competition link as well, great prizes.

      I’m in the same boat as you, Susan – books on my Kindle that I’ve downloaded and now they’re waiting to be read (got real books I haven’t read yet either). I just want more hours in the day!

    Cheers to your success Sally:-)
    Maybe a big virtual chocolate cake next time too!

    Really enjoyed One Day for Me! I wished there were more stories to read as I finished the last one. Your characters are difined so clearly and the diverse subjects you write about leave me wanting more….

      Thank you so much, Shirley! That’s really kind, please tell all your friends about me!
