I haven’t been posting writing contests recently, but a local author sent this one out, and I know several readers who may be interested. Sponsored by The Historical Novel Society International, this contest has an $8000 prize plus ebook publication with professional editing and cover design. Initial entry of a synopsis and first chapters, to 5000 words, due Sept. 30, 2012. The fee is $25 for non-society members. “Historical fiction of any kind admissible.”
What ho, ye valiant lads and lassies of the quill – go for it!
