Our June contest is about mysteries. We want authors to submit the first chapter to an original mystery novel (the whole thing doesn’t have to be written yet, we just want the first chapter!). We’re looking for a first chapter that’ll set up some colorful characters, present an intriguing case, maybe include a little action, and in the end leave us wanting to read more! Minimum length is 2000 words, maximum is 5000 words. Entry is free to everybody. First prize is a $50 gift card to Amazon.com, 2nd prize is a $25 gift card. The contest runs from June 1, 2008 to June 30, 2008, and winners will be announced by July 7, 2008.
