Some of you may remember a short piece 'The Irish Poet' I wrote a while back.
I worked on it a little, produced a first chapter and entered it into the Novelicious Undiscovered
first chapter competition.
The top 20 was announced this morning and I am delighted to see my entry made it.
The prizes are listed here
Here are some details about the competition. Part of the eventual outcome is decided by voters, so as I am not on Facebook or Twitter, I would be delighted if you would consider voting for me when the voting date comes around.
Here is some info from the Novelicious site:
What Happens Next?
Each weekday in May (starting on the 1st) we will be showcasing the above entries on this site (one per day). You can read and comment on the entries but won't be able to vote for your favourite until June 5th once all of the entries have been posted. Voting will be by way of a form (no facebook votes - don't worry!) and we will have a system in place to prevent repeat votes from one person. Voters will be entered into a draw to win a selection of 20 books!
The entry with the most votes will win the People's Choice Award
From the remaining entries, the Simon & Schuster UK Fiction Editorial Team will choose the Books and the City Choice Award Winner
Further information on all prizes can be found
The Top 20 will receive an email today with further instructions
Thanks to everyone and do stay tuned for the next round of Novelicious Undiscovered! 2012
Wish me luck, I'd better dash off and write some more words.
Congrats to the other shortlisted entrants and thanks to Irish writer Louise Phillips who posted about the competition on her blog, thanks Louise!
