Feline Flash Fiction Competition
On the 16th July 2013, Kristell Ink is exactly one year old…
“Holy potato, Batman! How did that happen?”
Exactly. Time has flown, and our first twelve months have been full of excitement, heartache, heartbreak, laughter, happiness, sadness and tears. However, we wouldn’t change a thing. We’ve loved putting together our books and releasing them into the big bad world.
Non-Compliance: The Sector, Strange Tales from the Scriptorian Vaults, Healer’s Touch, Guardians of Evion, Darkspire Reaches, Space Games and The Art of Forgetting: Rider… all of them have that something special. Over the next twelve months we have more wonderful titles to share.
As a little thank you/ writing challenge, we’re running a small flash fiction competition. In 500 words, we’d like you to tell us a fantasy/science fiction/steampunk/ subgenre story involving something with a feline feel.
“Feline? Huh? Why?”
Well, In May 2013, Kristell Ink became an imprint of Grimbold Books, and our parent company’s logo consists of two rather mischievous cats: Grim and Bold, and so we’d love to tie in theme to our new parents!
Also, we love cats…
To be extra nice, we’re opening the competition up to artists as well. If you don’t want to write, or feel you can’t write (not that we believe that!), then draw us/ paint us/ photo-manipulate us a unique picture involving something feline in the genres we’ve already mentioned.
Grim and Bold will be judging, along with Alex Shepherd (reviewer for Fantasy Faction and all around fantasy lover). Once a shortlist is decided, we’ll bring along Adam Dalton (Gollancz author) and decide on the top three.
In the event of a split decision, we will turn to Mark Lawrence (Harper Collins author) to make the deciding decision.
Closing date is the 16th August 2013.
Good luck! And Have fun!
