A Twist of Noir and Contest Reminder

Thanks to Col Bury, I found out about a way cool thing going on over at the A Twist of Noir blog. The deal is that the writer needs to come up with a crime story that has the designated number of words. There were 100 openings (600 to 700) and the line-up is full of talent. That said, I put in my humble request to see if could take part, and the blog owner Chris, has given me a chance at # 622. I'm honored, excited, and nervous as shite, but I have always felt that to succeed at something, you need take a risk and push youself.

I am going to have another contest where you can win a free copy of "Mindjacker", which I will send to you, wherever you live. On Tuesday, October 12th at 12:00 PM EST I will post a small passage from the novel where a character's physical appearance is described. Keep in mind, that most of the characters in the novel are modeled after people who are famous in one way or another. I will also provide a small clue to help point you in the right direction. All you have to do is be the first person to tell me the name of that person.


  1. Thanks for the mention, Sean.
    I'm glad you got in, fella.
    The comp's a good idea too.

  2. Ool- The thanks go to you. I'm pumped about the chance. Had something in the works for the TKnC Halloween event, but I'm re-working it for ATON, and starting something new for TKnC.

  3. Looking forward to reading what you come up with, Sean. Sent mine off last night. #629. Your contest is a tough one!

  4. Dave- Relly looking forward to reading your's as well. Have read some great stuff so far on ATON already.
