A while ago I wrote a site review of SammyTheBookworm.com and I wanted to direct you back to that site because she is having a short story contest.
The contest submissions end on October 31st and judging starts the same day. Winners to be announced January 16th.
Sammy the bookworm has 3 authors as judges and another judge is from another excellent book review site.
Entry fee is only $5 and their is a guaranteed $200 cash prize for first place, thanks to the contest sponsor IndieReader.com.
Here are the official rules from the STB:
*No explicit content.
*No foul language.
*Must be 5,000 words or less.
*Must be your original work.
*You can not enter for someone else.
*Cannot be previously published. (Personal blogs are fine)
*Decisions by judges are final.
*If the minimum number of contestants is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the contest.
*We reserve the right to extend the competition deadline.
So, dust off your favorite short story and enter this contest. You could be the winner of the $200 first prize!
And for those that don’t know, SammyTheBookworm.com is ran by my daughter Samantha, who, by the way, will be partipating in NaNoWriMo (that should not be news to those that read my other posts today).
Until next time…
