Minotaur Books is looking for debut authors! The adult crime fiction imprint is proud to co-sponsor three separate debut novel competitions. The winner of each will receive a paid contract and become a published author.
We’re asking for your help to enable Minotaur to reach as many aspiring crime fiction authors as possible. Does your library host any writing groups or book clubs? Have a bulletin board or online resources? Or maybe YOU are an aspiring crime writer! Check out this shareable one sheet for your website or any other platform you use to connect with patrons.
