Crime Fiction for Green

It's not for the faint of heart...and it involves money.

Intrigued?  It's a writing competition, and the prize is GREEN!  And I don't mean the type of green you planted yesterday on behalf of the Earth.  I mean good 'ol, fill up your pockets dough.

Don't care about making bucks?  Okay...How about just winning a contest and going up against the judging minds of Aldo Calcagno, John McFetridge, Steve Weddle, and Stacia J.N. Decker?

The rules (amid some heard-hitting language, as a warning to all queazies) are posted on Paul D. Brazill's blog, which you can reach here.  But the host is emerging author Jason Duke (see interesting interview with Duke here).

If you have a great piece of crime fiction and want an extra $100, check out this contest.  If you don't, uh...

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  3. Al- Time not included.

    Elizabeth- YW, and hope your talk went well. Happy Friday to you!

    Alex- Well, there is that.

  4. Very interesting. You don't usually see contests for money, or at least not many of them.

    Straight From Hel

  5. Helen- True, and it shouldn't (in the view of art purists) be our ultimate goal. But it is nice to get a little back for great effort. And it makes for an interesting link on an interesting blog (Paul's, not mine).

  6. Thanks for the link, I'll have to check that out!

    Have a fantastic weekend.

  7. Thanks for this link. It sounds great.

  8. Thanks for the post, and the link. I suppose I'd better try to focus my efforts. I've currently got my grubbly little fingers in story projects from three different genres and even song lyrics.

    Thanks for joining my blog. One these years I might be up to ten if I don't anger someone before then.

  9. B- YW & you, too!

    Debbie- Thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed finding your blog today.

    JL-Song lyrics, too? You renaissance man, you. And, ha! I enjoyed your blog! Freedom of speech and your own site means you can say (almost) whatever you want. I'm featuring your blog on my Sunday link roundup, so hopefully that will send a few more people your way.

  10. An intriguing contest. Hope your day with was a good one and the weekend goes well for you.
