We are in the final stages of preparation for this year’s Deal Noir which takes place this coming Saturday, 25th March.
At the moment I am reading through the entries for the Flash Fiction competition for which I am one of the judges. Once again the standard is very high with a variety of approaches to writing a crime story (not necessarily a murder) in 50 words or fewer. They range from a police procedural (yes, you can capture procedure in 50 words), through dark psychology to the downright macabre with one entry in the form of poetry rather than prose. It’s going to be a difficult decision.
There are still a few tickets remaining for what promises to be a fascinating day. You can book your ticket at the link on this page.
