You know how much I love my competitions!
Well, if you come to see me in The Literature Village at the Newark Book Festival on the 10th or 11th July, there will be a chance to win an e-version of Super Stories if you find a gold pencil in my Pick-a-Pencil game (50p to have a go!)
But if you're not going to be anywhere near Newark that weekend, then here's another competition anyone can enter.
As Super Stories is all about...writing Super Stories...then to enter, I'd like you to write a very short story (between 500 and 1000 words long) using one of my favourite and most-used prompts - Three Things.
If you'd like to enter, simply pick three of the following objects, and write them into a story. Interpret them as you wish - for example, the police car could be a toy, like the one shown in the photo, or real; it's entirely up to you.
Once you've written your story, email it to me as an attachment with a message title 'Super Stories Competition Entry'. Only put your name and age (if under 18) in the body of the message, and please tell me which three objects you chose. I'll then print out the stories and judge them anonymously. Closing date - midnight 31st July.
The winner will receive a signed copy of Super Stories and some of my favourite writing prompts. Two runner-uppers will receive a signed copy of the book. Fingers crossed, they will be announced - and maybe even read out - when I hold an online launch for Super Stories, most likely in August.
So get scribbling! And spread the word to other writers or budding authors you know...
