My flabber is gasted and I'm chuffed to lots of little bits to have won my first writing contest.
"To Hull and Back", run by author Chris Fielden, is a brand new competition for humorous short stories. Since opportunities specifically for any kind of funny literature are few and far between, I knew this was a contest I wanted to support. I genuinely didn't expect to win.
The prize is something to behold. Not only will my face be emblazoned on the front cover (see photo as an example, with Chris's picture), but I will also - if I wish - have the opportunity to travel, indeed, to Hull, as a pillion passenger on Chris's very impressive motorcycle (which he names "The Hog").
You don't get this with any other contest!
The anthology, with my story, the nineteen others from the shortlist, plus a story from each of the judges, will be available on 31st October ("Hulloween"). In the meantime, stay tuned for more news.
