HarperCollins have created an opportunity for writers to be published alongside one of their exciting new writers.
The competition prize, for three talented authors, is to write a short story :(but, don't start writing those short stories yet ;) which will be published in a special, limited edition epub of The Jerusalem Puzzle: the second novel from Laurence O'Bryan.
Firstly, you have to read the second chapter of The Jerusalem Puzzle.
Then, in no more than 500 words, say where you would take the story next either in the form of a synopsis, or the opening of the next chapter.
You need to be a member of Authonomy to participate in the contest so remember to register first if you're interested.
The authors of the ten entries judged to be the best will be given the chance to submit short stories for consideration by HarperCollins’ editors. They will also get advanced ring-bound book proofs of The Jerusalem Puzzle.
At the start of December, three overall winners will be selected to be published in the special edition Jerusalem Puzzle e-book next June.
If you want to enter you must email your 5oo words to email@example.com by midnight GMT on 31st October.
With such an exciting prize awaiting the successful writers, I've written and posted my entry - already.
