Allow me to, for a moment, toot my horn. I have finally won a competition. It's not a writing competition, though. It's a competition hosted by an author. Does that still count?
Accomplished author and Crime Space member Shirley Wells
recently asked people for their best tidbits of advice. The best would win a copy of her new novel, "Where Petals Fall." My entry, along with two other bits, won. Yee haw.
Here is the proof, per Ms. Wells's blog
The next winner was Benjamin Sobieck (hmm, another from the US) whose advice came from his father: ‘I tend to listen to people who know what the hell they're talking about.' I’m going to bear that in mind because I always seem to find myself listening to people who don’t have a clue what they’re talking about.
I can't wait to crack open the new book. It's just in time for read-outside-in-the-sunshine weather. If you're reading this, a million thanks to you Ms. Wells.
