Yesterday evening, British fantasy author Mark Lawrence launched the third Self Published Fantasy Blog-Off contest, issuing a call for self published authors to submit their work by 1st July. Only the first 300 hundred entrants will have their work entered so if you are interested, get a move on; at the time of writing 147 submissions have already been received. The SPFBO book contest is a wonderful opportunity for self published authors to greatly increase their visibility, and is not to be missed. Last years winner earned a contract with a major publishing house.

I decided to take the plunge myself and have submitted my debut novel, The Exercise Of Vital Powers, for consideration. I don’t for one minute expect to win, but wish me luck nonetheless. And good luck to you if you are entering the contest this year.
