My wonderful friend, Aniket Thakkar, is hosting a contest at Flash Fiction during the next few weeks, in honor of my forthcoming book, Plum Blossoms in Paris. I'll be judging, and I hope that many of you will take part in the fun!
Here are Aniket's contest guidelines:
- Register yourself and sign in, on the login panel in the right sidebar (if you’re new to the site)
- Write a story/poem in 1000 words or less, inspired by the image prompt, and post it in the dashboard available to you, once you’ve signed in.
- I will choose two winners at the end of the competition, each of whom will receive a shiny new copy of Plum Blossoms In Paris.
- Contest deadline is July 20th, 2010.
You know, I'm only beginning to get a handle on the promotional leg of my publishing journey. But with friends like this, I think it'll be a cinch. Thank you, Aniket. Your signed copy is on its way to India. Along with my gratitude.
